Msgr.Mbwega Kiwamirembe Foundation
This Foundation (MLMKF) is a nonprofit making Community Based Organization registered with Wakiso District Authorities to operate mainly in the Archdiocese of Kampala. It is located at Kiwamirembe Shrine in Wakiso district. The main purpose of starting this Foundation was to carry on the works of the late Monsignor Lawrence Mbwega, a catholic priest who was always concerned with the welfare of the elderly, the poor, the priests and the entire community in general.
Upon his death there was need to start a Foundation in his memory so as to continue fostering his wish of catering for the unprivileged people. It was officially inaugurated by the Auxiliary Bishop of Kampala Archdiocese the Rt. Rev. Bishop Christopher Kakooza on 7th January 2012. The Foundation currently carries out its activities mainly in Kampala Arch Diocese. Through the voluntarism of its members, MLMKF strives to improve the spiritual and social welfare of the underprivileged especially the elderly, the poor, and priests in hard – to- live and -hard- reach areas.
