About this project

In 2021, we treated over 13,000 patients and about 600 expectant mothers in our medical and maternity ward. There is no social insurance in Uganda. This means patients have to pay for medical treatment. This is not possible for most patients. In many other medical stations, patients without money are not treated. Exactly here we would like to set a sign and help exactly these poor people. Our help on site in Uganda is financed by your donations. The donations are not only used to buy medicines, but also to pay the salaries of our medical staff. We only employ Ugandan staff ... this is also what we understand as development aid. If you can imagine to support us with the purchase of medicines and the coverage of the salaries for 2022, we are happy about every donation!
