Community Outreach

We have treated hundreds of patients for more than a decade
we hold free medical clinics for children and the surrounding communities.


Amahoro is a registered non-profit based in Oregon, but we serve communities in Uganda. The word 'Amahoro' means peace, much like 'shalom' in Hebrew or 'salaam' in Arabic. We believe that universally shared ideal of peace is built on a better world for all people, and this directly drives our vision: to create a world where quality education and medical care is available to all, regardless of the resources available at birth.

Amahoro was founded in order to more effectively support children's homes and medical missions in East Africa. Though this nonprofit was created in 2016, we have been working with the same communities in Uganda since 2009. Our partners Caleb Rukundo at the Amahoro Children’s Homes and Dr. Franklin Muwanguzi at Jungle Medical Missions help keep our work moving forward year around.
