The Friends of Potter's Village

The Friends of Potter's Village has been formed as the UK Charity (charity number 1173948) to support the work of Potter's Village Ministries both financially, by raising funds, and by raising awareness of the amazing work being done by them among children and their families in Kisoro.

Potter’s Village and Coronavirus

Help us to keep the Medical Centre open

The Special Care Baby Nursery and Children’s Ward are
still open but there are fewer patients due to the
lockdown.

The staff have to sleep on site, so we need to provide accommodation and meals.

Income has fallen but the costs of medical supplies and drugs are rising.

Please remember the children and staff at Potters Village in your prayers, especially Idah, our Administrator, in charge of the site, Jovia, the nurse in charge of the Medical Centre, and the two clinical officers Davis and Rodgers. Dr Nicci is currently on home leave in South Africa, her plans to also spend time in the UK have been put on hold as all the borders are closed.

If you are able to, please don’t stop donating!

Thank you

Update 18.6.20
Total cases have now risen to over 700 in Uganda.  Back in Potter’s Village the Crisis Centre is working well and community visits have re-started.  Patient numbers at the Medical Centre are slowly increasing although still not back to normal.  We thank God for the generous giving of so many people to support the crisis at Potter’s Village.  As a result of this the Medical Centre staff no longer need to take a pay cut.  They are very pleased.  This may change again but for now we will keep reviewing the situation on a monthly basis.  We still don’t know how the pandemic will work out in Uganda.  Thank you for your giving and your prayers

Update 18.5.20
Total confirmed cases in Uganda are now 248, still with no deaths; many of the positive cases are people who came in from overseas, or truck drivers bringing goods into the country. The lockdown is being lifted slightly thus making it easier for staff and patients to travel, and already the number of children able to access Outpatients is beginning to increase. Most of the staff who were living on site have now gone home, apart from those who must travel furthest.

Help us to keep the Medical Centre open

Sr Jovia explains some of the problems they are having which underlie our campaign for funds to continue to pay the staff, thus keeping the Medical Centre, and the fantastic service they provide, going.
