Maranatha Health is a not-for-profit organisation based in Australia and Uganda that aims to improve health outcomes, empower the poor, and make positive lasting change with the people of rural Uganda.
At Maranatha Health we are passionate about making aid genuinely effective, and take a ‘for the people, by the people’ approach. Our aim is to collaborate with local people, empowering them to first imagine and then create the change they want to see in their lives and communities.
Projects we support are founded on three Core Pillars:
Our focus is on the holistic health and wellbeing of the communities we work with. We yearn to see populations that are enabled, thriving, confident, and resilient. We are very aware of the limitations of direct service provision, both in terms of how wide the impact can be, and how sustainable it is. And we realise that treating the symptoms of ill health can not create long-term change: it must be paired with preventing people from getting sick in the first place.
Because of this, the work we support is focused on capacity building and community health and development initiatives, as well as the provision of exceptional, model health care for children.
Projects we support are currently based in Fort Portal, Kabarole District, Uganda.
