In rural Uganda, the cost of healthcare is a barrier that many can’t overcome. Inequalities deepen and the poorest in places like Busu village in Iganga where we work suffer most. Sadly, the economic toll of Covid-19 will leave vital medical treatment beyond the financial means of more in Busu and other villages in Uganda.
Suubi Medical Centre is looking for funding and support from a variety of sources: individuals, companies, grants and trusts; major donors, the general public, schools, churches, and other groups.
Suubi Medical Centre is run as a community interest business (CIC) and we monitor closely all costs and procedures to make sure that the money our supporters give goes to where it really matters.
We have a team in both the UK (volunteers overseeing fundraising, running costs and organisation) and in Uganda, who deal with the day to day aspects of running the clinic. We are extremely proud of the value for money we provide with nearly all funds raised going straight into the clinic and there being minimal admin costs.

Those who have followed us over the years will have seen our struggle to connect Suubi Medical centre to the hydro electricity. Having power would make a difference because we would be able to use electric equipment and even carry out basic surgical operations and use a dental chair and things like that
We want to give this one last push. Our total bill is £2900 but we have £1700 so we need to raise £1200 to make it happen. We need some monentum to push this so that we end the 5 year long wait for electricity. Can you help with this drive?
