If this is your first visit then welcome to our Web Site. I hope that you will be able to find out much more about what we are and what we do.

A special thankyou to the whole host of supporters and friends who have been with us over the years. We hope that you will continue to enjoy sharing the news of our work in Uganda and Africa.

We are particularly writing now to let you know that this is a difficult year for Hospice Africa in Uganda(HAU). We are faced with a huge financial challenge.

As you may be aware, 60% of the funding for HAU was given by USAID. Now, after due notice, the change in policy within USAID in Washington means this is coming to an end very shortly. In 1993 when we commenced there was only enough funding for three team members for three months but a lot of FAITH! The FAITH remains big but the funding is suddenly dropping....

So we are now asking for each of our supporters in UK to help us a little bit more.

Can you help with a donation now? Can you commit to giving a monthly amount? Have you any ideas where YOU could raise money locally?

Look here on our Website for more ideas.

Please send any more ideas or suggestions to us and let’s brainstorm a way forward in this most generous of countries.

If you think you can help contact us via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Something to think about

Why not volunteer your time to come to Uganda and see the difference HAU is making in the homes of patients? This can change your values and outlook on life. But don’t be afraid of this. It can only get better!! All ages encouraged!!

Oral Morphine: The Pain Relief Key

Cheap and Non-Addictive

Imagine a world where however bad the pain, the strongest pain killer is just paracetamol.

When Hospice Africa started in Kampala, Uganda, in September 1993 this was the reality for Bashir, aged 8. Bashir had cancer and had just had his arm amputated.
