How you can be part of the life-changing work of Kisiizi Hospital
Written on Friday 13 June, 2008
We’re going to Uganda in October, and we’d love you to be involved.
In an earlier article I wrote about our plans to work at Kisiizi Hospital in southwest Uganda. Since then, we’ve been working with the team there to decide exactly what we’re going to be involved with.
Kate will be working as a doctor in the paediatric department, and plans to:
- Provide medical care to children and babies
- Train local staff in aspects of paediatric care
- Support the rural outreach team, who run clinics in surrounding villages
I will be involved in a range of things including:
- Being involved in managing building work and other projects
- Working with the hospital administrator, reporting to donors about how money is spent
- Making short documentary videos about Kisiizi’s work
- Training local staff in project management and IT
Be part of the plan
There are two ways you can support us: spiritually and practically.
God is at the centre of what goes on at Kisiizi. We would like you to pray regularly for us: why not receive our monthly newsletter by email?
Our time in Kisiizi is voluntary, but we do need to raise funds to support our work: about £10,000 over the course of the year. These include our travel and living costs, and money to spend on equipment and materials while we’re there.
Our church (Tavistock Methodist Church) is collecting donations on our behalf, to ensure accountability for the funds. If you are a UK taxpayer they can claim gift aid on your donations and add an extra 28% to the amount we receive.
Keep in touch
Kate and I hope you feel inspired to be part of the life-changing work of Kisiizi Hospital. To support us financially, please get in touch and we’d be delighted to give you more information.
I’ll be writing as regularly as possible about our work on this blog, and we’ll be sending a monthly newsletter by email to our supporters. Why not sign up to receive our email newsletter now?
