Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Batwa tribe was on the verge of extinction due to their being dislocated by the government to preserve the mountain gorilla (who were not harmed by the Batwa)from their natural habitat and to encourage tourism - all successful, however, the tribe were unable to fend for themselves and no assistance was offered. The Church of Uganda (Anglian) recruited a tropical medical specialist and Dr. Scott Kellermann answered the Call and founded the Kellermann Foundation. Dr. Kellermann has developed the most amazing hospital considered the best in all of Uganda, and has provided not only health care, but several systems/entities to help them become self-sufficient. The KF raises awareness and support for the plight of this people group in the US and will continue to do so until the very last person is healthy, self-sufficient and productive. They are a faith-based organization and therefore provide more than medical assistance; they care about the whole person - spiritual, social and economics as well.
