Kumi Community Foundation

Registered Charity Number 1184935


Helping Others To Help Themselves 

The Kumi Comminity Foundation was started in 2002 by Elspeth Robinson who first went to Kumi Hospital in Uganda as a Physiotherapist. She has since continued visiting Kumi for about 10 weeks every single year and now the Kumi Community Foundation supports many individuals with disabilities and malnourishment who are living in extreme poverty in remote areas of the Ugandan bush.

Whilst Elspeth and some of the team returns to the UK to raise funds with the foundation, Harriet leads the team in Uganda to continue providing support for those who require it the most.

How We Help

It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference

The Kumi Community Foundation outreach team identifies individuals in the community and selects those who are in most need. The children may require admission to the Nutrition Unit due to malnourishment or funding for surgery such as orthopaedic or plastic surgery. The families can rest assured that the child will have the best available care without concerns of payment.
Many people with disabilities are destined to live a life of immobility and hopelessness. They are very grateful when they are equipped with special seating, wheelchairs, prosthetics or tricycles which may give them the opportunity for a new life of education and future employment. However this project also needs to provide follow up care, artificial limbs need replacing, wheelchairs need mending. The foundation enables them to have replacement or repairs as and when necessary.
