"To promote the dignity, health and welfare of the people of Masooli, Uganda by providing for excellent and compassionate health care services."
Faith Mulira Health Care Center, Inc. is a U.S.-based not-for-profit organization that was established in 2003 to help meet the challenge of improving health care service delivery for the people living in and around the east African village of Masooli, Uganda.
Over the past several years, we have supported the construction of a new health care facility in Masooli that will further our goals of delivering high-quality diagnostic and preventive care, outpatient treatment, and health education services to an area of Uganda that currently is underserved.
Building a health care facility to serve the residents of Masooli has been the lifelong dream of Faith Mulira, a Ugandan woman whose name and vision the clinic honors. For years, Faith Mulira envisioned the construction of a comprehensive medical facility for the residents of the village of Masooli and the surrounding communities, many of whom live in extreme poverty and lack access to high-quality, affordable health care services.

Faith Mulira Health Care Center, Inc. is helping to realize Faith dream by partnering with a local Ugandan non-governmental organization to build and operate the health care facility that she was determined to bring to the village of Masooli. Faith Mulira Health Care Center, Inc. has been instrumental in providing supplies and equipment for the clinic; consulting with our partners in Uganda on planning, construction and staffing of the clinic; and helping to mobilize much-needed financial assistance to support this important initiative.
The Masooli Project
This new medical center will expand health care, outreach, educational and treatment capacities to people living in the rural community of Nangabo county, 8 miles from Kimpala, the capital of Uganda. This clinic will provide accessible health care and prevention education to thousands of people who now have to walk for miles and sometimes wait for days for expensive care.
The foundation of the Masooli clinic is built on faith-based communities who have come together in partnership to provide basic health care, preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS, and increasing the treatment linkages and caring community networks for orphans and vulnerable children in this underserved region of Uganda. Masooli is one of 9 towns in Nangabo region which has a population of 65,000 people.
A large majority of the population live in poverty and this new clinic will significantly expand health care access and make available health education, and testing services, increasing the capacity to effectively reach all citizens with prevention and education services, reducing and stopping HIV/AIDS transmission, treating and preventing malaria, tuberculosis. http://www.masooliproject.org
