Un Mondo di Amici O.N.L.U.S.


Un Mondo di Amici O.N.L.U.S. was born in Lecco on October 26, 2005 from a Gattinoni Group project. The Association is a non-profit organization and pursues the only purpose of social utility in the field of social and health and social development for the populations affected by famine, particularly hard weather events or by outbreaks and, more generally, populations with serious problems that may determine growth impediments, both in Italy and abroad.
The association, from 2006 to 2008, helped the funding for the construction and the set – up of the hospital Benedict Medical Center (BMC), built in Luzira on an area owned by the Archdiocese of Kampala (the South of Uganda) and granted in custody to Emmaus Foundation, run by Father John Scalabrini, who has been operative in the solidarity of Uganda for years and he’s a close friend with “Un Mondo di Amici O.N.L.U.S.” founders.
The aim of the project is to allow the access to medical cares to the inhabitants of a country tortured by civil war, through the operation of the BMC, which is entirely managed by medical and paramedical Ugandan staff, trained by Italian volunteers doctors.
From 2008 to 2011, the primary commitment of “Un Mondo di Amici O.N.L.U.S. ” was to ensure the supplying to all that was necessary for the Centre operation and, most of all, to collect the necessary funds to pay salaries to the medical staff employed, thus ensuring the development of the Continuing Education of Doctors project in order to spread the health culture, completely absent in that country.

Since 2011 Un Mondo di Amici O.N.L.U.S. has a new challenge of fully supporting the construction of a medical center in Paico village near Gulu town in northern Uganda. It is the continuation of support by our Association for a long term health project in Uganda conceived by our fiend Dr. Michael Ochan Kilama who is the co-founder and current medical director of Benedict Medical Center in Kampala city and now also heading Paico Medical Center. This new hospital will be developed to treat very needy patients in a village set-up where the population lacks everything
