RENEE Bach, the subject of the new HBO documentary Savior Complex, was seen living in North Carolina with her two adopted children.
Bach also sparked pregnancy rumors after she was seen with a belly.
The new three-part HBO series, which documents Bach’s controversial missionary work in Uganda, premiered on September 26th.
All three episodes are available to stream now.
Bach was seen over the weekend in North Carolina getting out of a car and walking barefoot toward a home with a “No Trespassing” sign.
“Entering these premises is absolutely prohibited,” the sign read.

It goes on to say that entry to the property is prohibited 24 hours a day and that police can arrest those who do not comply.
She wore a gray fitted tank top and black shorts.
Her blonde hair was held back with a clip.
Bach was seen juggling several items as she walked toward the house.
She was also seen leaving a cosmetics store with her two adopted daughters.
Bach carried a barefoot younger daughter while the older girl walked beside them carrying a shopping bag.
Bach began her missionary work in 2007.
She went to Uganda for nine months and volunteered at an orphanage.
Bach then went back to Virginia, but returned to Uganda – this time to start her own charity called Serving His Children.
Through her charity, she provided free hot meals to local children.
But then she was contacted by a staff member at a local children’s hospital and asked to help with malnourished children.
Bach, who had no medical training, did not operate in a hospital.
Still, she dedicated her nutrition center to providing malnourished children and their mothers with a place to stay while the children recover.
THE STORY OF THE VOLUNTEER
A volunteer who worked at Bach’s center, Jackie Kramlich, was a nurse at North Dakota State.
When she joined Bach in Uganda in the summer of 2011, she was surprised to learn that many of the children at the center actually had serious illnesses – including HIV.
Kramlich also said she saw Bach administering medical care herself — even though she lacked proper medical training.
Bach even documented her work in a blog NPRShe wrote at the time: “I hooked the baby up to oxygen and got to work.”
“I took her temperature, started an IV, checked her blood sugar, tested for malaria and looked at her HB levels.
“I tried to diagnose the many problems that could potentially exist. Got it: Malaria: positive. HB 3.2. …a big problem…most likely fatal. …She needed a blood transfusion. And quickly.”
Bach admitted to NPR that at times she had actually performed procedures herself.
“But it was always at the request and under the guidance of a medical professional,” she said.
Kramlich ultimately left Uganda four months into her planned year-long volunteer assignment.
“I was just beside myself. I mean angry,” she told NPR.
105 CHILDREN DIED
Bach ran the center for years.
She ended up caring for 940 malnourished children between 2010 and 2015, she told NPR.
During this time, at least 105 children died in the charity’s care.
The center closed in 2015.
Bach was sued by two people whose children died, but reached a settlement with them in 2020, the statement said NPR.
