CHEEERS: Developing Healthcare Together

Cause Description

Kisiizi Hospital has been badly flooded and needs urgent support!

A period of prolonged rainfall resulted in severe flooding over the weekend of 9th and 10th of September.


The Paediatric, lower medical and female surgical wards have all been evacuated. The power supply to the hospital and surrounding community has been cut and the circuit boards badly damaged. The water supply has also been interrupted and there are reports of raw sewage in the flood waters.


Kisiizi Hospital needs funds to support their response to this disaster and their future recovery.


The CHEEERS: Developing Healthcare Together team are appealing for any support possible. All donations we receive over the next 2 months via this platform will go directly to the flood relief effort.


Please share this appeal as far as possible and thank you for your thoughts and support for Kisiizi.


Thank you,


The CHEEERS team

CHEEERS is a non-profit, Irish professional volunteer multidisciplinary sending organisation.

CHEEERS works together with developing communities to improve healthcare services and to promote education and training of healthcare professionals.
It was established in 2015 by a group of Irish healthcare professionals who have volunteered at Kisiizi Hospital, Uganda and within the local community since 2005. 

In April 2015, CHEEERS sent the first multidisciplinary team of eight medical and allied health professionals to Kisiizi Hospital. The multidisciplinary team included a Psychiatric Registrar, three Physiotherapists, one Occupational Therapist and three Dietitians.

In 2016, CHEEERS sent a larger multidisciplinary team of thirteen allied health professionals including five Physiotherapists, two Occupational Therapists, four Dietitians and two Speech and Language Therapists.

In 2017, a group of 10 volunteers, including two Dietitians, one occupational Therapist, two Speech and Language Therapists and five Physiotherapists will travel to Kisiizi Hospital.
