The health condition of people in Africa calls for an urgent action to improve the health care services in the continent.
ACF Uganda together with ACF Missions Inc, have been conducting medical outreaches in remote villages of Africa since 1998 and has served thousands of people during our summer missions’ trips during this period. Presently, we hold community medical outreaches in remote villages and communities that lack health care services during our summer mission trips in Benin Republic and our two program sites (Fort Portal area and Kumi district) in Uganda. The medical team consists of doctors and nurses from the United States and local medical practitioners.
The second component of our effort to help with the provision of health care in Uganda is the construction and operation of health clinics. ACF Uganda with support from ACF USA completed the construction of a medical clinic in Kigarama, Uganda which started providing services to the people in November 2013. Together we’re constructing a second medical clinic in Kamenya, Kumi district which is projected to cost about $100,000.00. Extra fund will be needed to equip the clinic for full operation.
The Kigarama medical clinic currently has eight staff members and it costs about $2,500.00 every month to pay staff salaries and replenish the stock of drugs and medical supplies to adequately operate the clinic.
The clinic currently serves both inpatient and outpatient departments. The ministry needs funds for these projects and will appreciate you support.
