Who we are

The Foundation has collected the spiritual and material legacy of Father Giuseppe Ambrosoli
The Foundation supports the hospital and midwifery school in Kalongo, Northern Uganda, providing support to both institutions via fundraising and capacity building activities. The Foundation is guided by the principles of its founder: dedication, professionalism and participation.


The Ambrosoli Foundation was established in 1998 by Father Giuseppe Ambrosoli’s family and the Comboni Missionaries, to ensure a future and continuity of service to Kalongo Hospital and the Midwifery Training School Father Giuseppe had founded back in 1957 in Northern Uganda. Transparency, reliability and concreteness have always been the core of each action we take.
