The residents of the Zirobwe village have no access to healthcare in their community. Many diseases that plague Africa, such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, typhoid and measles are preventable. Uganda’s infant mortality rate is high: nearly 90 out of 1,000 babies born do not live to see their first birthday.
Beyond health, mothers lack the knowledge of how to stimulate their children at a young age to give them a head start in education.
At the medical clinic we will seek to not only provide medical care but health education for the community. The clinic will have a special section dedicated to focusing on pre-natal care, family planning, and children’s health and development so we can give these children the very best start in life.
We’ve held multiple medical camps where medical teams offer free mobile medical clinics for 3 days. Thousands of people flock to these medical camps.
The need for accessible healthcare is immediate.
