Helping local partners realise their vision of hope for their communities
HART first visited Patongo in the Acholi region of northern Uganda in 2005. As fighting continued between the Uganda Army and the Lord's Resistance Army, we spoke at length with local peacebuilders to understand their priorities for aid and their solutions for long-term development. After two years of consultation, we helped to establish PAORINHER (Patongo Orphan Infant Health Rehabilitation).
HART UK and HART Australia partnered with HIAM Health in 2012 to provide six years of funding from the Isle of Man International Development Committee. We achieved enormous success in tackling malnutrition, including via cultivation of the Moringa plant – sometimes called a ‘miracle tree’ because of its nutritional properties.
HART is not just ‘another aid organisation'. We support people suffering from oppression and exploitation who are ignored by the international media. Between 2007-12, we raised the profile of the Dalit people's urgent concerns. We advocated for the reversal of India’s centuries-old oppression under the caste system. We supported medical clinics to treat patients with HIV.
