Earlier this year Bishop Hannington Mutebi, Assistant Bishop of Kampala in Uganda, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. This news, and the fact that no effective treatment is available in Uganda for this disease, prompted family and friends to launch a crowd funding appeal to enable Bishop Hannington to receive treatment at King’s College Hospital in London. Enough money was raised for him to commence treatment back in April. Most of this was raised by friends in Uganda, but a number of us were able to offer some support here in the UK also. I thank God that the treatment has been successful, and Bishop Hannington is recovering well. The Mutebi family have expressed their gratitude to all those who have supported them as they have faced this challenge.
There is however an outstanding balance of £38,000 to pay, to cover some of the further treatment he has had to have from King's College Hospital. That is why I am now appealing both to those who have already helped, and to those who are hearing about this for the first time. If you can give, no matter how much or little, it will be a blessing both to Bishop Hannington and his family, and to his beloved diocese, who have done so much to help him, and who are looking forward to his return to ministry in Kampala.
