The organization’s programs are the brainchild of our founder, Brian Walusimbi a local clown. The idea for the organization was born when Brian visited the Cancer Institute at Mulago National Referral Hospital located in Uganda’s capital city of Kampala. During this visit Brian saw many children in pain with little to no access to the basic necessities of medication, food and clothing.
Most of the patients at the facility had traveled long distances from the rural areas of the country to receive treatment. Due to the fact that many of the individuals and families at this facility had spent all their money on getting the needed treatments they did not have the any funds left to return to their homes. It was at this time that he was moved with compassion and decided to start the Bless a Child Foundation.
