Kisiizi Hospital was founded in 1958 by Christian Missionary John Sharp. The hospital continues to care for the most vulnerable and admits around 550 and 700 patients each month.
EDIRISA UK is an unsung charity founded by Sheila Windridge. She observed the suffering of women and children who had to carry half their body weight in water up steep hills, to their homes.
Kisiizi Hospital’s Community Health Insurance Scheme (CHIS) started with 330 members and now has 45,000 members who retain their premiums as members across 225 groups.
