Real Medicine Foundation has been serving Ugandans, Ugandan IDPs and refugees from other African nations since April 26th, 2008, when the RMF team first arrived from the USA to the Mulanda Refugee Transit Center. The main support program followed these refugees to the Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement in Uganda, offering material support but also a sense of hope that their lives can and will get better. To that end, we currently sponsor more than 6,000 students between nursery school and high school age, manage a health care clinic specializing in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, malaria and malnutrition and a Vocational Training Center that employs local instructors to teach marketable skills including hairdressing and tailoring. RMF has also been active supporters of the World Children’s Fund Mama Kevina Orphanage/School in Tororo since 2009 and the Buwate Sports Academy.
This project addresses two goals: Emergency operations and care and maintenance of more than 100,000 refugees and asylum seekers through the delivery of quality healthcare services.
As the UNHCR Healthcare Implementing Partner for Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, RMF provides health services to refugees through health screening of new arrivals, over 30 stationary clinics, a health outreach program, and support of referral points like Yumbe District Hospital.
A UNHCR managed refugee settlement that provides shelter, land, and support for more than 100,000 people, including Ugandan IDPs and refugees from Kenya, DR Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, and South Sudan.
An orphanage and a boarding school that provides education and care for orphans in Eastern Uganda.
RMF provides 4 area health centers with medicines and medical supplies. Additional medical staff (including 2 doctors) and janitorial staff are also sponsored by RMF, improving the capacity and cleanliness of Panyadoli Health Centre III.
Seeks develop the youth advancement component of our humanitarian work through games, sports training, vocational training and other educational opportunities.
A model for income generating opportunities for the populations we are supporting around the world so they eventually can be self-sufficient again.
The Kiryandongo Sports Program combines Real Medicine Foundation’s on-the-ground knowledge and resources with training and initial assessment from PeacePlayers International and support from Laureus Sport for Good, using sports to bridge divides and create a safe space where young people can form new group identities and learn skills to effectively deal with conflict.
