Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Have been involved with this foundation for 9 years and a board member for 2 1/2 years. The mission of KF to provide sustainable support for the Batwa pygmies continues to grow and the results prove it. Healthcare through the Bwindi Community Hospital and the Uganda Nursing School Bwindi serves a population of 300,000 people in a historically underserved area of Uganda.

Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been affiliated with the Kellermann Foundation for eight years. First as a volunteer in Africa, as a financial supporter, and now as a board member. Uganda is a challenging part of the world in which to work, and yet the our work being done there is nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the Lord and the pioneering work of Scott and Carol Kellermann and many, many others. The work has gone from a makeshift 'roadside' hospital on a groundcloth with IV bags hanging from tree branches to one of the best hospitals in the country in 15 years. The hospital leadership, doctors, nurses and staff are all Ugandan, and the accredited nursing school is growing rapidly. It has impacted the public health of this whole remote region of SW Uganda. The other part of our work has to do with supporting the Batwa people of the region which were displaced from their homes - the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in the early 1990s. In partnership with the Church of Uganda we have been resettling these wonderful people and helping them transition to a new way of life quite different from the rainforest. Please go online and see the amazing story of our work there!
