Mission Statement: 

“Suubi” means, “hope” in the Lusoga language, spoken by people in Busu village in the Iganga region of Uganda.

Denis Kigongo started Suubi Medical Clinic, in response to the desperate situation of the people in Busu. Denis was born and brought up in the village, so he knew that many children die before their 10th birthday, often of treatable diseases like malaria. Denis himself has lost cousins and neighbours who died at an early age.

Denis felt a strong sense of responsibility to the community that he grew up in and started to build the clinic in 2003 together with Lorraine using local labour and materials whenever possible.
