WE STARTED WITH RAW GROUND...

We began with the dream of building a hospital.  Our building site was bare ground with no running water.

 

We hired locals who traveled on foot and by using motorbikes to deliver the water needed for the project.

They hauled water from a local river about 10 kilometers away.

We created employment opportunities for the locals with an understanding that one day they would have a

regional hospital to care for their families and improve their lives in many ways.

And that time is NOW!

OUR VISION

For Bukwo to be a gold-star community steeped in high quality health care and successful educational initiatives which support a thriving economy consistent with biblical principles.

OUR MISSION

is to provide sustainable healthcare, education, and economic development services that ensure a prosperous future for the people of Bukwo consistent with strong Christian beliefs. We will revitalize the community with love, renewed hope, and the skills needed for a quality and dignified life.

WHERE WE ARE TODAY

The hospital has been opened and is now seeing both inpatients and outpatients.  Minor surgeries as well as C-sections have been performed and lives have been saved. 

 

Current needs: 

  • refrigeration for the morgue (there is no morgue in this area of Uganda);

  • incinerator,

  • furniture for hospital rooms and mission house rooms,

  • building a kitchen/cafeteria, salaries for the staff. 

 

Bible studies, Gospel presentation and much training will be coming soon as the hospital is the start of development in Bukwo.

WILL YOU JOIN US?

Our wonderful staff works hard for little pay.  We desire to increase this to a comparable wage.  Eventually the hospital will be self supported but right now FOBG needs some outside help to make this happen. 

 

We also need those skilled in leadership, farming practices, entrepreneurship, and financial stewardship to come alongside this community to help them. 

 

Would you join us on a future trip?  Go to our website to find out more.
