How we Manage Donations

All of the money contributed to Bwindi Community Hospital goes into our Hospital bank account, whether the money is donated through the U.K., the U.S. or directly to our bank in Uganda.

Notification of all income received is sent to the Hospital Finance Manager, Enock Twongirwe:
And the Hospital Communications team:

Financial management

  • A member of the finance team will acknowledge receipt of the money by email, and    record the income on the Hospital QuickBooks financial management computer    system.
  • Income is classified according to the department in the Hospital or project that it is    funding. Every department and each project has a budget.
  • Expenditure is made against budgets, and release of any amount of money    requires the signature of the Medical Superintendent, the person in charge of the    organisation.
  • The Hospital has sound financial policies and procedures that are reviewed each    year.
  • The Hospital finances are audited each year by a firm of independent auditors    based in Kampala, the capital.
  • Audited accounts are published on the Hospital website in November of each year.

How money is allocated within the Hospital

Communications management

•  A member of the communications team will acknowledge any donations received    and   gives timely feedback on how the contribution has been spent.
•  Feedback is usually by email, although we do send some paper copies of our    newsletter.
•  We do our best to communicate exactly how a donation is spent in order to    achieve the   goals of the program the contribution is supporting. • Each year we    produce an annual report which is sent to supporters and posted on the   website.
•  We produce a newsletter every quarter.
•  We occasionally write an update or a feature that we share with supporters.
•  The Hospital never shares contact details of any supporter with any other    organisation.

How we apportion money to different areas of the Hospital

More than 15,000 children in the area are now protected from malaria by sleeping under nets - thanks to the work of the Hospital.
