In February 2005 Fr. Morrow had a communication from Bishop Cyprian K. Lwanga, then Bishop of Kasana-Luweero Diocese in Uganda, asking for help in combatting the culture of death in Uganda, and in particular in his diocese. Father's response to Bishop Cyprian resulted in a pro-life committee being set up, and help given in many other ways to the diocese, thanks to the generosity of the benefactors of Humanae Vitae House, and Fr. Morrow.

Despite his illness in the spring of 2005, which necessitated giving up Humanae Vitae House, and his removal to Nazareth House in Aberdeen, Father managed to raise nearly 6,000 in 2005, thanks to your great generosity. This was sent to Bishop Cyprian to enable him to set up the pro-life committee.

He went out to Uganda in Summer 2006 and again in November 2007. The following are a selection of the pictures he bought home with him from the first trip. To see the pictures in more detail click on them.
