A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTORS
Greetings from Jim & Immy Rose Namutosi Lassiter in Georgia, USA!
This is an invitation for you to become a supporting member of a not-for-profit, charitable village health clinic in Uganda. So far, all costs for establishing and running the clinic have been paid by us and a few friends. We need your help to keep the clinic open and growing. This is an appeal for your kind financial assistance.
Pius Health Clinic, seen below, began as a request from Immy Rose’s late father, Mr. Lawrence Kiondo. Mr. Kiondo, near the end of his life, asked his children to build a health care facility at his rural residence in his homeland BuMasaaba, in eastern Uganda.
Located in East Africa, Uganda is on the Equator. Immy Rose’s homeland, BuMasaaba, is in the far east of Uganda on the Uganda-Kenya border. Currently Uganda is home to over 45 million people. There are over forty ethnic groups the largest of which is the Baganda. Immy Rose’s group the BaMasaaba comprise slightly less than five percent of the total population. Pius Health Clinic is located in one of the most densely populated rural areas of Uganda and Africa where an average of over 1,500 people occupy each square mile.
Here are the top ten health challenges faced by Ugandans, including the BaMasaaba: neonatal disorders, HIV/AIDS, malaria, lower respiratory infections, tuberculosis, diarrheal diseases, heart disease, congenital defects, stroke, and road injuries.
You can help by joining us in our effort to fund Pius Health Clinic.
Become a supporting member of Pius Health Clinic today through a recurring monthly contribution of $20 or more, or an annual contribution of $240 or more. Or, you may make a one-time contribution of any amount.
We are happy to announce that Pius Health Clinic Uganda Charity, Ltd., the public charity we established, was recently approved for 501(c)(3) tax exempt status by the IRS!
Immy Rose and I are the sole administrators of the charity and operate it out of our home. We therefore have no overhead which means 100% of your charitable contributions will go directly to supporting the clinic. We provide a quarterly clinic budget and medical operations report to all contributors.
