Bwindi Community Hospital
Founded in 2003 as a mobile clinic by Dr Scott Kellerman, the hospital now provides healthcare and education for over 60,000 people. The hospital runs maternity and paediatrics wards as well as outpatient programs for conditions including HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Epilepsy and Diabetes. The VSPT has contributed to recent projects including improving the adult wards and providing new facilities and equipment. In 2012 the VSPT pledged funds in support of an annual project, ‘Sanitation Project for Schools and Homesteads in Uganda’, which aims to improve public awareness of hygiene and sanitation and to empower children to become active agents of sustainable hygiene and sanitation.
