Building up a teaching hospital with operation                  theater in south-western uganda



- Dr. med H. Listle working together with volunteers of the Kanungu District and volunteers of a German protestant church has realised the vision to build up the existing Katate Health Center IV in Kanungu building an operation theater for basic, life-saving surgical procedures.

- CHIFCOD is a NGO "seeking to empower doers to transform communities through provision of quality and affordable education, improved health and poverty eradication."

Hamlet Kabushenga is bishop of the Free Methodist Church (FMC) in Kanungu, former member of the Ugandan parliament and caring both for the spiritual and economical needs of his people

- the protestant church of Eppingen has been working together with Bishop Hamlet Kabushenga for over 10 years building a primary school in the Kanungu District/South West of Uganda. The partnership is flourishing and good friendship has developed over the years. Members of the church in Eppingen are visiting the project regularly and it continues to grow in a healthy way. Visit their website  (website in German).



We visited Katate Health Center in March 2014 during a trip to another mission hospital in south-western Uganda. He investigated the existing infrastructure of the Katate Health Center and examined the potential of the existing facilities.

Together with an African architect we designed and built a simple, purpose orientated, full functional operating theater with one main operating room and two wound dressing rooms suitable for minor operations and a dentistry.

We have supervised the construction of the operation theater personally throughout the whole time until the completion of the construction in 04/2019.


The project is a non-profit initiative and based on fund-raising. The money and cash-flow between Germany and Uganda is officially supervised and managed by the German protestant church of Eppingen (see banc connection below).

The next steps are to renovate the existing old buildings and to put up a reliable solar power based energy solution system by the German company BOS-AG/Neu-Ulm.
