Story of Helen's Kilimanjaro Challenge

Our Chair of Trustees, Helen Smith, is climbing her steep drive (which rises 7m) 843 times. This is equivalent to walking to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, from sea level. She is raising money to support Dreamland Mission Hospital in Kimilili, Kenya, as well as Kisiizi Hospital in Uganda. Both hospitals are serving populations that are suffering because of the consequences of Covid-19. On top of that, there has been devastating flooding which has left many people homeless in the areas surrounding both hospitals and eastern Africa is seeing the worst plague of locusts in 70 years, causing severe food insecurity in the region. These events combined will lead to an increased demand for health services.

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. Through 'Kisiizi Orphans' the charity also supports children who have lost one or both parents so that they can fully complete their education, both formal and vocational. This support often continues past the age of eighteen since before joining the scheme many have missed school to care for a sick relative or to help work on the land.
