Overseas

Every year, Mildmay works with over 100,000 of the most vulnerable and hard-to-reach people living with and affected by HIV and other related health issues

This includes children and their families, vulnerable children and orphans and other vulnerable groups.

Mildmay trains many ordinary people to become community health volunteers, providing basic healthcare and social support for people living with HIV in their communities. This enables those in the remotest regions to receive the care they need.

Our programme of education includes the training of community healthcare workers, senior government officials, prison wardens and drug rehabilitation teams.

 
Current projects in Kenya and Uganda that we need your help to fund:

Mildmay UK is taking action to address the chronic shortage of PPE in East Africa by securing our own supplies to ship directly to our sister charities in Kenya and Uganda.

We need your help to secure the safety of our staff, our volunteers, and the vulnerable people we care for.

Your generous donations funded the purchase of our first Tuk-Tuk ambulance for Mageta in 2018.

 

But one ambulance for 12,000 people is simply not enough and a second vehicle would greatly increase the reach and impact of the services the health centre could provide

Our aim is to purchase a second ambulance for the island's residents at a cost of £10,000.  Find out more. 

Your donations have already provided sufficient funding to begin the refurbishment of the health centre on Mageta Island in Lake Victoria, Kenya.

 

We still need to raise £12,000 to complete the refurb. Find out more.

Elizabeth Ward treats over 500 children a year from underprivileged families who require specialist care, at no cost to the families. Elizabeth Ward is entirely supported by charitable donations from Mildmay UK, via our UGANDA Fund, and every year, we need to raise £20,000.

We need to raise £15,000 through our KENYA Fund to purchase a much-needed vehicle to allow the Mildmay Kenya team and our Community Health Volunteers to reach their many projects in rural areas. Find out more

Kenya

Mildmay Kenya works to empower communities to deliver HIV health care services through support, education and training.

Uganda

Mildmay Uganda was Mildmay’s first international programme, opening in Kampala in 1998.

Today Mildmay Uganda is an independent NGO, or non-governmental organisation (charity), with its own board.

 

Mildmay UK are proud to support Mildmay Uganda whose work  reaches over 100,000 people every year living with and affected by HIV, and expanding to address other health conditions.*

 

Past work

In the 1990s, Mildmay was called to extend its expertise to some of the areas where HIV and AIDS were hitting hardest – firstly Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya then Zimbabwe and Rwanda and later into Eastern Europe.

*Mildmay UK works with our sister NGOs overseas

Mildmay KENYA and Mildmay UGANDA operate independently - they are locally registered with their own Boards of Trustees and constitutions. Although they undertake fundraising and partnership work locally, they rely on Mildmay's supporters in the UK to fund their work.

 

Mildmay UK needs to raise funds for these and other projects
