    Intrigued to see how HBO covers this because this story isn't that grey, she had no medical training, administered her google search earned medical training on at risk children, and that intervention killed them. Will be severely disappointed if it tries to instill any level of sympathy towards someone this psychopathically delusional because the only reason she's not in jail is because she's American and this happened in a different country.

      And she's religious. I was raised in an extremist evangelical community, with siblings who were "missionaries" and the exponential multiplies of her being a white American christian woman all amount to a deference of authorities as to what the reality is of their doings in other countries.

    The fact that she’s doing this documentary and not imprisoned for her actions… she contributed to the death of 105 children. I hope the funds from the series go to those she hurt due to her negligence

      She never killed children or do surgery on them. These children were severely malnourished and she gave them iv drips etc. Things that are taught in courses. Some of these children were about to die and died in her care. Some people blamed her for the deaths but she didn't do anything wrong. She wast cleared by Uganda officials. They even proved that some people were trying to blackmail her for money.
      So sick of people blaming it on the colour of her skin. Does anyone ever do actual non bias research anymore?

    What Renee did was abhorrent. There is no excuse. It was unethical, self-serving, and reckless. She is responsible for over 100 child deaths. It’s horrific. If she had done what she did in the US, then she would be behind bars. I truly cannot believe that instead of being arrested she is getting a docuseries. This is shameful and it is insulting to all the families she took advantage of and to the children endangered and killed.

      That's awful. This is the first I'm hearing of this. Hopefully the docu sends the message to give the justice these children and their families deserve. No medical training and poking kids with needles it's just nuts. How did they die? Is she some Munchausen case or what?

      Why do you assume the docuseries makes Renee out to be a hero? Just from this trailer, it's pretty clear that it's a critical look at what she did. She's not "getting a docuseries". A docuseries was made about her actions. Those things are not the same.

      @Michael K. But she did do courses to give IV's?? The children died cause they were on the brink of death. The "killer" theory happened cause she settled on the civil suit. Read the transcripts of the civil suit and exactly what happened. She would of won but stress got the better of her. Only 2 parents brought on a civil suit cause the others knew the circumstances. They were 50/50 to death. Many, many more would of died without her care. She's being crucified for trying to save lives

    This charity was a business. There are videos of former members of the charity speaking about how they profited from donations, pretended to help when they had no expertise or experience in medicine, construction & education and that many of the children were used as props to make videos to influence more ppl to donate. I am surprised she even agreed to do this and expose herself further.

      She didn't cause anyone to die. The local hospital had a higher death rate. And she was investigated by the Uganda Medical and Dental Practitioners Council and found to have done nothing wrong. She was helping severely ill children who were starving to death. And if she hadn't been there they would have just died in the streets.

    Ive seen comments saying that the rate of death for her organization was 11% vs the rate of 40% for that region. Folks, that comparison is illogical. A proper comparison would be between her organization and an organization with trained medical staff - because that was what the people of this region thought they were getting and should have received. Suggesting that people of the region should just be happy with the faulty dangerous help they got because without that "help" it would have been worse is unacceptable.

    • Stinky Cheese
      Stinky Cheese День тому +1

      Yes, but what you don't seem to want to accept is that she is only there because there is no alternative facility with trained medical staff, available to these people locally, sufficient to care for all of them. A proper comparison would be the reality of the situation which is with her, 11% death. Without her, 40%. Can you guess which # is larger? Any parent can choose to take their child to her, or not, to instead go somewhere else. I am highly in favor of their being a better alternative in both training and facility quality. Until then, you work with what you have.

If you say, "But I don't know how to ___," they'll respond, "Well, Moses had a speech impediment, and God still used him," or some other example from the Bible.
    The result is a lot of well-meaning white people unintentionally doing lots and lots and lots of harm.

      @Carly Crays "a lot of people in the Bible were highly regarded professionals in their own way."...You type that as if it were historical fact. Do you believe the Bible is telling a story that is inspired by God and ALL true, or just parts of it? The reason I ask is because the Bible teaches its followers to accept immoral actions as morally acceptable without ever teaching them otherwise, and I want to understand if YOU cherry-pick from the book in order to stay morally grounded, or if you accept the immoral teachings too...

    • Carly Crays
      Carly Crays 18 днів тому +6

      @Guess Who I say that because while I don't think the Bible is literal, I think you can use real historical context to figure out the education level and professional attitude of the characters and historical figures. I also think that this common Christian story that these people were all humble and of the salt of rhe earth really is just pushing a narrative which feeds into their missionary plots and prosperity gospel.

    There’s genuine Doctors and Nurses and other Allied healthcare professionals that are well experienced and qualified to assist people in those medical camps, I know people that have sacrificed everything to serve my mother continent.
    One of the main reasons that causes death in children - they are brought to these professionals when it’s too late and they expect a white saviour mentality, of-course with pain of loss comes hatred to the white saviour.
    I am not saying that responsibility shouldn’t be taken as some of them are just students and lack experience however, medical camps do provide a lot of help to our communities and still save lives.

    As a Black Christian, I’m very interested in this “being called by God” situation. Does God know that we will make mistakes when we do His will? Yes, but at the same time, it’s such a weird trend of white Christians always being “called” to help poor Africans. A lot of people build their identity on who they can help. Some of these people can’t even evangelise to their neighbour but feel okay going to another continent. Obviously, I’m aware that people can be called and then mess up like Saul.

    1 very simple and straight forward question ... If it was in the US and not Uganda, would this be ok? If this lady went to a poor neighborhood/county in the US in the name of helping malnourished children and in 5 years 105 children died in her facility... will it be a case settled out of court? I think the most atrocities committed in this world is by "Christians" or people who claimed to have been "called" by God for a mission... from crusades to Karens. You may not know but many Africans, Asians, South Americans ... know what European "evangelists" have brought to them. So yeah it hits different when you know what you know.

      Your first question is the most relevant one I have seen thus far in the comments. And the answer to that question points to the biggest culprit here. The reason why this will not be okay in the US is because there is a government that has laws to ensure it isn't just not okay but will prosecute and seek justice for those children based on those laws. The Ugandan government is the biggest culprit here and the reason why all other culprits will face no accountability.

    I’ve been to Africa, over a dozen countries including somalia, nigeria, south africa etc, to even compare the level of poverty and starvation witnessed in a place like Somalia to Detroit really shows peoples ignorance. its shocking as an American to witness children starving to death. I once witnessed a child with leprosy starving to death. Any sane or rational person would be moved and want to help. It has nothing to do with a “white savior complex”. The issue is with how Americans should go about helping. You can critique missionaries for thwarting governments, but governments in places like Somalia are notoriously corrupt. We need to focus on finding solutions as opposed to tearing down people who dare to help others. In many cases, missionaries are the only ones who provide some semblance of healthcare in remote villages. If missionaries are a problem, then what organizations should we invest in? What organizations are on the ground in remote villages providing help? Oftentimes, people critique these religious organizations and provide no alternative.
