The Story

Thanks to the success of last year’s Easter Chicken give, Kisiizi hospital has been able to give hens to numerous families in need this year! Parents of children with malnutrition have been provided with eggs during thier stay in hospital and then given a hen to take home. Patients being discharged form the mental health ward have also been able to return home with a hen, and many of those hens have now had chicks! For example Lois* pictured above has 3 adult children with health problems. Two have epilepsy and one has schizophrenia. She is a single mum and feeds her family from what she can grow on her land. Dr Georgious, Kisiizi’s mental health lead, was able to give her a hen to supplement the families diet. Since receiving the hen, this families has enjoyed eggs and has also welcomed a batch of chicks! *not real name This Easter if you’d like to give £10, £8 will buy a hen for a family in need, and £2 will to buy chicken feed and also be used to improve facilitates in the hospital’s malnutrition project. For example, we’d like to build a larger hen house so that more hens can be available for patients when they are needed. Also we’d like to purchase an incubator so that the hospital can raise its own hens, making the scheme much more sustainable in the long term.

Kisiizi Partners

Kisiizi Partners supports Christian hospitals in developing countries, primarily Kisiizi Hospital in south-west Uganda. Many larger charities and grant making bodies prefer to fund capital costs or other special projects, often stipulating that the money must not be used to meet day-to-day expenditure. Kisiizi Partners focuses on supporting the day-to-day running costs and encouraging the recruitment and retention of a skilled and motivated workforce. Kisiizi Partners supports hospitals with a proven track record for providing high quality healthcare in situations where there is a demonstrable funding gap between income and expenditure and a manifest desire to deliver that care to some of the World’s poorest communities at a cost that they can afford. Every penny given to the charity (excluding a small deduction made by the banks) is passed on to our partners in developing countries.
