On October 12, Center for Hospice Care (CHC) will host the 6th Annual Okuyamba Fest to benefit their international partner, the Palliative Care Association of Uganda. The event begins at 5:30pm and takes place on CHC’s Mishawaka campus. It offers attendees the opportunity to learn more about Ugandan culture while enjoying food and beverages. 

The event features a silent auction during which many hand-made Ugandan art and craft pieces will be made available. Proceeds will benefit CHC’s “Road to Hope” program that supports children in sub-Saharan Africa who have been effectively orphaned after caring for their terminally ill parent or parents. Participants will also be able to sign up to sponsor a specific child in the “Road to Hope” program, to ensure this child has his or her basic needs met for food, clothing and education.

Registration for this special event is $25 a person or $45 a couple. Students with a valid Student ID can register for $5. For more information, please contact Hannah Birong at BirongH(at)cfhcare(dot)org or 574.243.3119, or visit
