Why Gulu, Uganda?
Beginning in 1985, northern Uganda became a central battlefield for the war between the Uganda government and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Access to health services was already a problem in the northern region and was exacerbated by years of violence.
Effects of a collapsed infrastructure are still seen today, and access to general health services and specialized surgical care remain a critical problem—one Medical Missions Foundation has been committed to addressing since 2010.

More About St. Mary’s Hospital Lacor
St. Mary’s Hospital Lacor is our central location during the Uganda mission. The hospital resembles a compound with walls and security added to provide refuge during times of war. Lacor acts as both a nonprofit care facility and a medical learning center with over 350 resident students on-site. Many of the students, local physicians, and nurses annually work side-by-side with our mission team.
