About the campaign

For over 13 years, The Grainery Church has partnered with the Anglican Diocese in the town of Muko and the surrounding villages in south-west Uganda, through the establishment and development of the Muko Health and Maternity Clinic. This clinic provides free and subsidised medical care and services to impoverished communities, and is fully funded by the generous giving of Grainery church members. With no hospitals in the vicinity, Muko Clinic ensures that essential services are  accessible for  all, providing general outpatient services, antenatal and postnatal care, delivery of babies, dental clinics, immunisations, family support services, referrals to other hospitals and ambulance services.

One thing we know for certain is that in this world, there is SO MUCH UNcertainty. BUT, we have the opportunity to provide certainty for the villages surrounding Muko. Certainty that they can deliver babies safely, at any time of the day or night. Certainty that if they get sick, they can receive local medical care or transport to a larger hospital that can provide for their needs. Certainty that they can receive health education that will EMPOWER them to make good choices for their family. 

Empowerment of people and communities is the way of the future, and it’s also  the way to ensure sustainability in our partnership. Community-driven leadership means empowering the local communities through access to education and resources, allowing them to take control of their own future and make positive choices that will build a better future for all.  Our long term vision is to develop the clinic to a stage where the Government of Uganda will step in with ongoing funding and our support can gradually be reduced until the clinic is completely self-sufficient. 

This is not a distant project that we fund through a third party. This is The Grainery Church, you and I, taking seriously the call of Jesus who said to care for the poor and needy.  For over 13 years, we have done this by forming and maintaining a direct partnership with the community in Muko, Uganda.

This year, we are aiming to raise $50,000. This money will cover two years of funding for the Health and Maternity Clinic, including staff wages, medicine and equipment, and building maintenance. 

Would you consider sponsoring a doctor’s salary for one month at $290? Or maybe you could commit to paying a full year’s wage for a midwife for $1900? Did you know that  for $640  the clinic can be provided with the required medicine for an entire month.
