Starting in 2014, over the course of 5 years I got the privilege of going to Uganda on 7 trips led by Gordon with Tonbridge Baptist Church. The trips were called Mission Rwentobo and our base was a school setup by a charity called World Shine in a town called Rwentobo, located in the south west part of the country.
It became clear after the first visit that there was a desperate need for more medical infrastructure for not only the school but the surrounding town. This sparked the idea to build a clinic and in 2019 and after a big fundraising effort, Hope Clinic was built with one side of the clinic facing the school and one facing the village.
Gordon transitioned the name Mission Rwentobo from being the trips we used to do, to the recently formed charity to support the work of the clinic. He approached me in March 2022 and asked whether I could build a website to be a place for information, promote fundraising events and be a place where people could easily donate. I didn't need long to say yes, and initial wireframes were in his inbox within a couple of days.
