Mission Statement of MANU
MANU is a joint United States-Chicago based and Ugandan not-for-profit organization committed to the mission of promoting and providing sustainable health care services to the needy. We plan to help fight disease and poverty in Northern Uganda especially those high risk populations and the most vulnerable, regardless of their social status, ethnic origin, religious or political affiliation.
The foundation wants to provide medical care and rehabilitation, infrastructure development, health education, and facilitate transportation to promote access to health care. The Catholic health care system is well organized with Aber Hospital and multiple clinics strategically placed throughout Northern Uganda in the Lira Diocese to provide supplemental health care to the village population without regard to religious or political affiliation. We want to assure heath care access to the marginalized and the weakest social groups like children, women, those in destitute financial conditions, and those with chronic health conditions and unable to provide for themselves.
MANU works with governments, non-governmental organizations (NGO), corporations, community groups and individuals to foster effective, long term solutions through health care services that enable Ugandans to enhance their quality of life and existence.
The executive committee and board members shall adhere to the principles of the mission statement of MANU since the human person and his or her health is at the center of all activities and endeavors of MANU.
