WORLD CONGRESS OF FAMILIES
The World Congress of Families is a tax exempt Anti-Homosexual hate organisation endorsed by the Mormon Church.

The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 (previously called the "Kill the Gays bill" in the western mainstream media due to death penalty clauses proposed in the original version) was passed by the Parliament of Uganda on 20 December 2013 with the death penalty proposal dropped in favour of life in prison. The bill was signed into law by the President of Uganda on 24 February 2014.
Thank goodness the law didn't actually pass. But Western religions with billions of tax-exempt funds tried to get gay people killed in the shittiest third world country on the planet.
The legislative proposal would broaden the criminalisation of same-sex relations in Uganda domestically. It further includes provisions for Ugandans who engage in same-sex relations outside of Uganda, asserting that they may be extradited for punishment back to Uganda, and includes penalties for individuals, companies, media organisations, or non-governmental organisations that support gays.
The private member's bill was submitted by Member of Parliament David Bahati on 14 October 2009. Same-sex relationships are illegal in Uganda – as they are in many sub-Saharan African countries – and punishable by incarceration in prison for up to 14 years. A special motion to introduce the legislation was passed a month after a two-day conference was held in which three American Christians asserted that homosexuality is a direct threat to the cohesion of African families. Several sources have noted endemic homophobia in Uganda has been exacerbated by the bill and the associated discussions about it.
On 1 August 2014, the Constitutional Court of Uganda ruled the law invalid.
I wish I had something that proved that the Mormon Church helped fund it.
The Church actually has a pretty long and deep relationship with the WCF that the HRC report does not even get into.
The Church and WCF
WCF involvement in Russia
WCF has clear connections to Russia, where "gay propaganda" is banned.
WCF involvement is Africa
This is more complicated. I would concede that the WCF did not directly advocate for the harsher laws in Africa, but they certainly brushed shoulders with those that did (like Theresa Okafor) and gave rhetorical support to other African allies:
