Welcome to UK Friends of Mengo Hospital Kampala, Uganda
UK Friends of Mengo Hospital is a small British charity whose aim is to partner with Mengo Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, East Africa. Mengo Hospital was the first hospital in East Africa, built in 1897 by Sir Albert Cook.
We are entirely run by volunteers and employ no permanent staff so we can assure you that every penny you donate goes directly to improve Mengo Hospital.
Friends of Mengo Hospital can also be found in Canada, USA and the newest group is in Uganda itself.
"To attempt to heal the suffering is much; to carry the water of salvation is more; but to combine the two is the grandest work a man can have" Albert Cook
