A young missionary named Renee Bach left her comfortable life in America to start a malnutrition program in rural Uganda. Folks back home and in Uganda praised her as a model missionary -- an example of the healing power of God’s message. But a decade later she’s accused of masquerading as a doctor and rumored to have killed hundreds of children in her unlicensed clinic. How did Renee Bach end up here? Is she a case of good intentions gone wrong...or a predator posing as a saint? Hosted and reported by journalists Rajiv Golla, Halima Gikandi and Malcolm Burnley.

I can't stand people who end every sentence as if it were a question.

So not only does Renée have a savior complex, she also has a persecution complex. Typical.

All Renee's comments in her blog and interviews are I and Me statements. She has no interest in the Ugandan people she initially went to help.
