Friends of Kagando is a UK based charitable trust set up in 2003 and managed by a board of Trustees who are past long-term workers at Kagando or regular visitors.

The charity aims to support Kagando Hospital by raising funds, sending equipment and encouraging friends and colleagues working there by correspondence and visits.

Friends also provide support from people with clinical, technical, management, educational, pastoral and fund-raising expertise.

The trustees never claim for expenses, air travel to Kagando or out of pocket expenses, and so administration costs are minimal, and are limited to items such as bank transfer fees for when money is sent to Kagando.

The Friends of Kagando maintains a newsletter mailing list and we are always looking for partners and volunteers to support what we believe has become a ‘centre of excellence’ in Rural Uganda.
