What you need to know:

  • Mr William George Omoding, the hospital administrator, said Ongino is a donor-funded health facility which faces a shortage of funds but co-shares the cost with patients, and gets additional support from the government in form of drugs. The hospital was built in the early 1920s by the White Missionaries to handle cases of leprosy, among other diseases.
