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

Keeping the Medical Centre open

We’ve had a fantastic response to our appeal, thanks to your amazing generosity. The total raised so far is £18,293. Thank you so much!

It means we can continue to provide increased support for as long as is necessary.

 

Update 8.8.20
Total cases have now risen to around 1,270 in Uganda, with 6 reported deaths.  In Potter’s Village the Crisis Centre is working well and community visits are on-going.  Patient numbers in the Medical Centre are continuing to increase.

Shops and other economic activities are operating normally, and public transport is running again but vehicles are only permitted to carry half capacity making it expensive for travellers. Boda bodas [motorbike taxis] have been able to carry passengers since the end of July. The borders are still closed.

Donate

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.

Thank you for your giving and your prayers

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. 

Keeping 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.
