Kumi Hospital farm
UIC ( Uganda Investment Corporation ) together with the Dutch Kumi Hospital foundation found a shape was under the approval of the Kumi Hospital Board to exploit the land under the name Kumi Hospital Agro Park. UIC is a group of Dutch entrepreneurs who set up projects in Uganda to promote the self-reliance of the population there. Consider, for example, importing tractors so that the land can be better cultivated and the yields and thus the self-reliance of the population increases. In addition, the Kumi Farm foundation would like to mention that the UIC is trading on a non-profit basis.
Ultimately, this was designed in which it was roughly agreed that UIC may use the grounds of the farm to establish a profitable mixed company here in 10 to 15 years with the focus on milk products with the ultimate goal of making Kumi Hospital self-sufficient.
When this job is done, UIC withdraws and is returned to those involved.
