1. She started a non-profit called “Serving His Children.”

According to The Root, who dragged Renee Bach for filth for her alleged behavior (and one can understand why), the missionary started a non-profit organization called Serving His Children, which purported to focus on malnutrition and starvation. It was under this guise that she provided makeshift medical facilities, and posed as a doctor when she had no right to do so.

“The Women’s Probono Initiative, the organization that filed a lawsuit on behalf of two mothers who say their infant children died in Bach’s care, allege that Bach was often seen wearing a white medical coat and stethoscope, and administering medication to children; she allegedly even took children out of local Ugandan hospitals and moved them to the Serving His Children’s “treatment center,” reports the outlet, adding that the Ugandan government told her to close down all operations after the children died.

Renee Bach allegedly killed over 100 children. 

2. Renee Bach is allegedly responsible for more than 100 deaths.

According to The Times UK, Renee Bach is allegedly responsible for more than 100 deaths of children that were in her care. “More than a hundred babies died in Uganda after being cared for by an American missionary who spent years passing herself off as a doctor, according to court documents,” they wrote, adding that Bach first allegedly started doing this when she was a teenager.

3. Some members of the American press tried to warn others about Renee Bach’s questionable business practices, to no avail.

Patheos, a noted atheist publication, first tried to warn others about Renee Bach’s questionable business practices back in November of last year. They warned that Bach’s charity had no oversight, because it consisted solely of her friends and family. They also said that a few watchdog groups had come forward to warn others about Bach’s practices, but got nowhere.

“Renee Bach, a woman serving as a missionary in Uganda, decided to play doctor with the children in her care despite lacking a medical degree. She allegedly took them from actual hospitals to “treat” them at her ministry headquarters, Serving His Children. To no one’s surprise, several of them died. A group called No White Saviors is now raising awareness of this case in hopes of bringing her to justice,” they wrote, adding that Bach responded to their claims by saying that she was only “helping doctors” at their request, not performing actual medical procedures or claiming to be a doctor herself.

Journalists report that Renee Bach keeps changing her story. 

4. She's claiming that she’s innocent.

In news that should shock no one, Renee Bach is professing her innocence. According to WSET-TV, attorneys for the missionary are claiming that the lawsuit is “without merit.”
