Back in February I was in Ruhanga and this what the community medical centre looked like. A few months on and I am amazed by the amount of work that has gone in

And here is a video clip from my visit

As you can there was an awful lot of work to do

This outside verandah will also form part of the waiting room – it is a great facility to have as folk can take shelter from the both and the sun and the rain

    Well, Thankyou Ida for putting these up on your Blog. The outside of the medical centre is now completed with painting and the inside is well on the way. We now have to make shelves and cupboards and some tables and then begin thinking about how to fund the purchase of equipment such as an examination couch and screens, tables and chairs, a microscope for the lab and other essential doctors equipment.
    We are aiming at opening for initial patients by early October; before then we have to landscape the surrounding grounds with gravel paths, grass and a few shrubs plus upgrade the entrance in from the main road.
    We would like to have an official opening ceremony and invite the local MP, district Medical Officers and other dignitaries, but this is undecided at the moment as we would be expected to supply drinks and some food for everybody, as is the Ugandan Custom.
