This is my first post on the website as Chief Executive of Jamie’s Fund even though I have been working with the Trustees since April. It has been a busy 6 months but you may wonder what has been going on!
There has been a lot of work ‘behind the scenes’ by the Trustees and myself developing the plans for the building of the new mental health unit in Kisiizi, updating the website, applying for funding and working on the future direction of Jamie’ Fund.
We feel it is now even more important than ever to publicise the work of Jamie’s Fund to a wider audience to increase awareness of mental health issues in Uganda and to help us raise vital funds to enable us to fulfill our pledge to build the the new unit. It is amazing how much has been raised by supporters of Jamie’sFund – £58,000 so far – but we need to keep going!
