BUKDA’s work is in line with our main objectives which include education, health, social welfare and promotion of culture amongst others. Every year we sponsor at least 60 children in Bambui through Disadvantaged Children's Education Project.
This year, in the area of Health, BUKDA donated a new modern delivery bed to Tubah Sub Divisional Hospital. We are also working on other projects to be delivered before the end of the year. Please, visit the ‘projects page’ for a detailed appraisal of some of our work.
Through the Disadvantaged Children’s’ Education Sponsorship program BUKDA is truly 'opening doors of opportunity to the less privileged' children. For over 10 years now we have sponsored more than 300 disadvantage children. Most of the children on our education program are from families where parents have died of HIV/AIDS or are living with the disease.
By stepping in to undertake Education Sponsorship, their parents can concentrate on looking after their health. This enables them to worry less which in turns helps the emotional and wellbeing of the children and their families.
Late last year, BUKDA conceived a project to source funds buy a new delivery bed for the Tubah Sub Divisional Hospital, Bambui. Most, of our members, were delivered in this hospital. When some of us visited and discovered the state of the maternity, especially its infrastructure, we felt it was incumbent on us to do something.
We are proud to say that in February this year we donated a new delivery bed worth £2,000 to the hospital to replace the over 50-year-old one which was past its ‘use by’ date. This donation prompted the District Hospital Head, Dr Dingana Terence Nwana, to say ‘I felt pleased by the gesture coming from members of the community residing in the UK’. He thanked BUKDA for the gesture and prayed for our continues Support.
BUKDA has previously cooperated with partners Reignite UK, the Bambui Cultural Development Association – BACUDA, Bambui Community Cultural Organisation – BACCO USA and other Non-Governmental Organisations on several development projects. An example is the Ngong Project sponsored by the Big Lottery Fund and executed by Reignite UK. Through this project, the Bambui Community learnt new farming techniques which improved crop production, better storage, improved food processing amongst others.
We are currently working with BACUDA and BACUDA, our sister organisations on several development projects within the community. An example of one project which is underway is the Bambui Palace Museum project. This is an is a project to construct an ultra-modern structure which will serve as a museum to preserve the rich arts and cultural heritage of the Fondom for future generations. If you would like to donate to this project, please head over to our ‘Donate’ page to do so.
