WHO WE ARE

DR. AMBROSOLI FOUNDATION

Since 1998 we support Dr. Ambrosoli Memorial Hospital and St. Mary's Midwifery Training School in Kalongo in Northern Uganda, founded in 1956 by the Comboni surgeon and missionary Father Giuseppe Ambrosoli. Through the support of the hospital and the midwifery school, we ensure access to health services to local communities and promote the medical and managerial training of local staff, to accompany the hospital towards its autonomy and contribute to the progress of the country.

WHAT WE DO

We are working in one of the most remote and poor areas of Northern Uganda, in a region lacking health facilities and still heavily affected by the legacy of a twenty-year civil war that has destroyed the social fabric of local communities. We support Kalongo Hospital, the only hospital in Agago district serving also neighbouring districts, which guarantees qualified health care to over 50,000 people every year and oversees the 33 local district dispensaries. For a total population of about 500,000 people. We provide continuity to the midwifery school to empower young Ugandan women and to fight the high rate of maternal and child mortality.
