Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA
The Kellermann Foundation came to life after the amazing work of Dr. Scott and Carol Kellermann in SW Uganda. They went into SW Uganda in 2000 to evaluate the medical conditions of the Batwa Pygmies. The Batwas had been displaced from the Impenetrable Forest when it became a reserve for the Mountain Gorillas in the mid 1990's. They had ALWAYS lived deep in the forests.
The Kellermann's made a life changing commitment to stay full-time with the Batwas for 8+ years, ministering to the medical needs, establishing a Women's program, buying land, building mud huts, teaching farming and sewing and more. While there Dr. Kellermann established the first hospital that ministers to Ugandans in SW Uganda and tribes in surrounding countries. The Bwindi Community Hospital is now top rated. Just completed is the Nursing School which trains Ugandas and Batwas to become nurses who will soon minister to their own people.
The Kellermann Foundation has made and is making a huge difference in the daily lives of the Batwa Pygmies who would have perished without the Kellermanns generous gift of time and talent.
