The Hospice Foundation’s Okuyamba Fest is a celebration of international food, drink and art. The event began as a way to help the Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU) in its efforts to bring palliative care to all in Uganda. Since the beginning of Center for Hospice Care (CHC) and Hospice Foundation’s (HF) partnership with PCAU, Uganda has gone from having palliative care available in 34 districts to 96 out of 121.
The event is currently held every two years and coincides with PCAU’s exchange visit to the U.S. The evening includes a silent auction with proceeds benefitting one of PCAU’s signature programs.
