We were glad to welcome members of our Board for a meeting on Friday 4th October. It proved a useful and positive day as we reflected on progress made in the past months and looked at plans and challenges for the future.
The photo shows members of the Board joined by some extra Management Committee members following a shared lunch.

[Dr Francis Banya was away at a meeting and Dr. Gabriel Okumu in UK for Friends of Kisiizi Day and some specialist surgical experience].
In addition to the paper work, the Board visited the Surgical Ward to see progress with the renovation work and expressed their gratitude to those who had helped fund the project. They also visited the site to be used for the new Mental Health Unit.
It is hoped that we will be able to invite the Minister of Health to visit Kisiizi in the next few months to see for himself some of the programmes we are running.
