The Iyolwa Project

A team of celebs mixed with local talent have transformed a dilapidated clinic in eastern Uganda in to a fully functioning healthcare facility. But it’s not just about the bricks and mortar, it’s about the people who live and work here. Across Africa there are many more communities that need our help. You can continue to make a difference by providing medical training, life saving vaccines and mosquito nets.
