As you are aware, for the last 10 years 60% of the funding for Hospice Africa Uganda, was given by USAID. Sadly, due to a change in policy within USAID in Washington this support is due to end in September this year. Despite knowing about this for some time and exerting our best efforts to find alternative funders there is still a funding gap. We are appealing to all our suppoters to helpfill the gap so that the work in Uganda can continue.
