Trustee (Uganda)

David accepted Jesus Christ while attending Kigezi High School in Kabale, Western Uganda. He qualified as a pharmacy technician and was asked to take charge of the Mengo Hospital Pharmacy department, where he had worked during his training. He served in the hospital pharmacy until 1980, when he moved into administration. David studied further in Limuru, Kenya, and at South Bank University, London, and achieved an MSc in health service management.

As a hospital administrator, he has held various responsibilities including hospital finances, facilities and infrastructure, procurement and storage, transport, communication, legal affairs, security, cleanliness and external communication. He has served as committee secretary to various board committees.

David and his wife Susan have five biological children and one adopted child. The couple also have two grandchildren. During his spare time, David enjoys gardening, walking, and being involved in church and voluntary services.

David met Siân in 2007. Siân’s father was a missionary in Uganda and had been David’s friend for many years. Siân and her friend had expressed concern for a group of children and young people who were suffering at a local children’s home. David’s involvement at the time was advisory in terms of where they could be taken, when and how.

“I have continued to support through the birth of the organisation in 2009 and its subsequent growth. I believe Biojemmss is a good organisation to be involved with because it handles disadvantaged children who will one day be our future leaders.”
