The children’s first visit to the medical centre

The doors to the medical centre opened last December  but we still needed permission from the District Medical centre to see patients and this finally came through in February.  The first task for the medical team was to screen 500 children from Ruhanga Development school and complete an immunisation programme.  Read more

Photo update of work at the community health centre

Last week we announced that work had on the Community Health Centre had started in earnest. A big thank you to those that have heeded our call for support. It is a huge undertaking and we are grateful for all the support that we can get

It is all hands on deck now and even the children joined in by carrying a brick or two to speed things up

First things first- patient toilet is going in first- sanitation is a big aspect of improving the health of the community

The other aspect of our work is ensuring that all work where ever possible is undertaken by local people.

 

Stay tuned we will provide you with updates and if you would like to make a financial contribution please do so at

Work on the Community Health Centre gets underway

Phew! It is August already, the Olympics have come and gone. Really proud that one of the Gold medals went to Stephen Kiprotich a Ugandan long Distance runner. Did you know it is 40 years since Uganda won a gold medal at the Olympics! This is a cue to get our school children interested in sports, you just never know the next Gold medal winner may come from Ruhanga.

 

So what have we been up to in the village

 

A fair amount but  suffice to say, We have got off to a good start this year and have already completed a girls only toilet at the school to ensure that the older girls can remain at school, we completed a school kitchen so we can feed the children whilst they are in school, and work is under way on the Community Health Centre which we hope to complete by the end of the year.
