Hope For Healthy Living: The Pastor John H. and Marie Parrish Medical Center in Fort Portal, Uganda

NBMOA CEO Roland Parrish has funded the construction and furnishing of a medical clinic, named in honor of his mother and father, to care for 2,500 orphans and others in Fort Portal, Uganda.

Treatable ailments such as cuts, malaria, malnutrition and diarrhea kill 70,000 to 100,000 Ugandan children each year.

The Parrish Medical Center, which opened on May 17 of this year, is expected to serve 16,800 patients annually, providing valuable and essential medical care for this underserved community.

Parrish has also pledged to build a school in Fort Portal.

According to UNICEF, nearly half of Uganda’s 2.5 million orphans lost their parents to HIV/AIDS.
