Calvary Chapel Entebbe, a born-again Christian church located along Kiwafu Road (Nakiwogo) has freely distributed medicine with a face value of $1m to nine health centers in Entebbe and Kampala.
The Church, in partnership with Hope for Restoration Initiative (H4RI), reached out to health facilities including Entebbe General Hospital, Butabika Mental Hospital, Kigungu Health Center, Cherish Uganda, Katabi Airforce Hospital, Nsamizi Army Hospital, Calvary Chapel Island Mission among others.
This program was facilitated by CitiHope and FOI Laboratories in Vancouver, WA.
“The medicines were donated free of charge and will be distributed in the same way,” H4RI said in a statement.
“As we reach out and touch lives spiritually, it is in our heart to also touch bodies physically, teaching the Word and loving the people,” Calvary Chapel Entebbe remarked on Wednesday.
The Church was planted in Nakiwogo near the shore of Lake Victoria in 2006 by Pastor Craig and his wife Loren, along with a team of Bible school students from Calvary Chapel Kampala Bible College who had a heart for ministry and a desire to be part of a new church plant.
This charity report comes at a time reports continue to uncover crisis in Uganda’s public health sector.
Despite record investment over the past few years, the healthcare performance is ranked as one of the worst in the world by the World Health Organisation.
