Our work with TUSC in Uganda

TUSC (Transporting Ugandan Sick Children) is a small charity organisation that provides transport for sick and disabled children, pregnant women and others with health needs from villages around Jinja, Uganda to clinics and hospitals.


In Uganda 57 children in every 1000 under the age of 5 years die, (compared to only 4/1000 in the UK), and every pregnant woman in Uganda has a 1:35 chance of dying due to a pregnancy related complication.
