About Bongolo Friends

Bongolo Friends was launched to be an accelerator of long-term, high-return, strategic projects that allow Bongolo Hospital and other Christian hospitals in Africa to provide excellent and compassionate medical services to all who come.

We are an international nonprofit based in the United States focused on helping Christian hospitals in Africa that demonstrate the compassion and love of Jesus Christ through healthcare.

Not just to the rich, not just to those who believe what we believe, but to all who come. Rich or poor, Christian or Muslim.

We envision funding that will help create a beloved community of Christian hospitals in Africa, serving together in a way that emphasizes health and well-being for the people they serve as well as the training of African medical specialists wiling to serve throughout Africa.


Even in Africa, hospitals that raise the living standards of the people they serve must continue to improve.

Bongolo Hospital has brought medical miracles to Africa for nearly four decades, but to address the next frontier of healthcare delivery in Africa, more financial resources are necessary.

First Priority

Our first priority is the long-term presence and productivity of Bongolo Hospital, and as God provides, we will be an enduring resource for as many other Christian hospitals in Africa as possible.

You Can Impact the Health and Well-being of the People in Africa

Bongolo Friends is based in the USA and registered with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a 501(C)(3) organization.
