Ways to support

There are many ways you can support the work of Bwindi Community Hospital (BCH) and Uganda Nursing School, Bwindi (UNSB).

1) Volunteer

BCH and UNSB welcome volunteers who share the vision of the organisations and have skills and time to contribute. Visit the hospital website for more information or email the hospital communications team.

The Royal College of General Practitioners in the UK have a partnership with BCH. They aim to recruit a GP and a GP trainee to volunteer at the hospital each August for a year. The role combines clinical work with quality improvement work. This is advertised on the RCGP international page throughout the year. Email the RCGP international team if you are interested.

There are lots of voluntary opportunities within REACH Bwindi. Get in touch if you’d be interested in getting involved.

2) Donate

If you would like to donate money to BCH or UNSB please visit the Charities Aid Foundation, or click the ‘Donate’ button below. We can claim GiftAid on your donation if you are a UK taxpayer. Please contact us if you would like your donation to have a particular focus.

You can alternatively visit our MyDonate page (which is closing in June but donations before then will reach us safely).

We occasionally fund raise for specific projects. We are currently raising money to:

Regular donations are really helpful. If you would like to set up a regular donation please email us and we can send you a standing order form.

A little goes a long way!

3) Fundraising

Get in touch if you have any fundraising ideas or would like to enter a sporting event to raise money for REACH Bwindi. We have had a fundraiser run the 100km Race to the Stones last year and we have a fundraiser cycling the 100 mile Ride London this year.
