The Sovereign Wings of Hope mission is to offer affordable humanitarian and spiritual hospice/palliative care services to those in need of them.
With over 35 million people, Uganda is an East African country with a population growth of 3.5% per year - projected to double by 2020. Therefore, there are an increasing number of people in the rural areas that lack access to adequate health care. For instance, almost 60% of Ugandans never see a Health worker, and less than 1% of HIV/AIDS patients can access anti-retroviral therapy. Less than 5% of cancer patients can access chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
