The Kamuli Friends charity supports Kamuli Mission Hospital in Rural Uganda.
Philip, Paddy, Stephen and Robert are going to play 108 holes of golf in one day. This will involve each walking over 25 miles and hitting over 500 shots. It won't be easy but if it helps Dr Alice Unwin to buy an ambulance for Kamuli Hospital it will be well worth it.
Alice is in Kamuli at the time of sending this note out. She along with many other doctors volunteers her time to work at Kamuli. Alice started the appeal for the ambulance because "Working as a volunteer doctor in Kamuli Mission Hospital, I have seen too many mothers and babies lose their lives as a result of complications in labour. Travelling many miles to get to the hospital on treacherous roads by way of motorbike, bicycle or on foot adds insult to injury by delaying their access to lifesaving treatment. An ambulance would mean that these mothers would have a safer, faster passage to the hospital for emergency treatment."
"Kamuli Mission Hospital is in one of the poorest part of Uganda and relies heavily on charitable donations. It serves a population about the same size as the Royal Berks hospital in Reading but has only 4 doctors doing the endless work. A lot of the work centres around providing maternity care for the local population but only the most difficult cases are treated there. It provides the best possible care in spite of the extreme conditions. Many difficult deliveries and operations are performed. It punches way above its weight!"
This charity was formed in 2012 by Dr Philip Unwin to help fund the hospital. Please look at the gallery section (image of a small baby) for a short film made by Philip that clearly shows the hospital and explains where the funds go.
donation big or small will help and is hugely appreciated.
