Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first met Dr. Scott Kellermann in 2007 when he came to our camp to assist my friend. She had broken her arm while gorilla tracking. Dr. Kellermann invited us to visit the Bwindi hospital which at that time was small with 3 beds, very clean & very much needed. Everyone was so excited to show us around and proudly pointed out the medicines, the freshly painted room, the personal touches of humankind.
Most of all their passion and true dedication to helping to care for the "Forest people", the Batwa, who were getting lost in a growing society and a shrinking forest.

I will never forget meeting several of the pregnant Batwa women who had walked for days in hopes of delivering a healthy baby. I was so touched and changed by this experience of seeing what human kindness, dedication and passion can offer to others, that years later, when I had the opportunity to volunteer on the communications board of the Kellermann Foundaiton, I did not hesitate.

Today, that little hospital has 130 beds, a nursing school is now opened and the Batwa continue to learn to be self sustaining with education, skills in tourism, working & having healthy babies & healthy, thriving families.
What joys and blessings to know of such an organization and what an honor to serve on a committee that strives to help continue this work
Sincerely,
Kathleen Cook-Hunter, Dallas, TX
