Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA
The work of the Kellermann Foundation, supporting the displaced Batwa pygmies of Southwest Uganda, is nothing short of miraculous. The Batwa were Hunter/gatherers for 1,000s of years in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, until it was named a World Heritage Site in 1992 to protect the endangered mountain gorillas. The Batwa struggled to survive until Dr. Scott and Carol Kellermann were asked to go to Bwindi and evaluate the people. What began as a modest medical mission evolved into the Kellermann Foundation, which has built a first-class hospital, serving the Batwa and surrounding people, a nursing school, education programs, agricultural programs and spiritual support. My husband and I met Dr. Kellermann in 2005, and after hearing of his passion and care for the Batwa and their culture, we began supporting KF and have been involved ever since. KF's mission...providing hope and health in Uganda...has never wavered. As a 3-year KF board member, I am continually impressed with the staff's organization, diligence and concern with every detail of the operation of the Foundation. My family is honored to be associated with the amazing work of the Kellermann Foundation.
