Fundraising Events

The Boards of Barbara May Foundation and Te-Kworo Foundation are delighted to invite you to an inspiring evening to celebrate a life-saving collaboration in Uganda. The partnership brings together Alice Achan and Te-Kworo’s 20 years of grassroots work with war- affected girls and women in northern Uganda with Dr Andrew Browning’s two decades of service to women, preventing and treating obstetric fistulas, in Ethiopia, Tanzania, South Sudan and other parts of Africa.

Together, we will see the realisation of a built-for-purpose maternity hospital in remote northern Uganda to provide free maternal health services for underprivileged women and girls affected by conflict and poverty, who currently lack access to such services.

These events mark the beginning of our work together to improve birth outcomes in a region with some of the world’s highest rates of mother and infant mortality. We invite you to share our vision for safe birth and look forward to you joining us.

If you are unable to attend but would like to donate to support the work of the Foundation, you can do so securely online.
