Help us to provide primary health care to those who need it in rural Uganda.
Our goal is to have a fully functioning primary health care clinic in the rural area of central Uganda by the end of 2023.
Services at the clinic will include:
- Screening and pathology
- Antenatal and postnatal care
- Treatments for infection or trauma
- Public health campaigns and more.
The clinic currently has skeleton nursing staff, pathologist and a visiting doctor once a week. It is our aim to provide opportunities for medical and nursing training through sponsorship for future staffing of the clinic.
Health Clinics International (HCI): Uganda is founded by volunteers from the health industry, business and graphic design. We have visited Uganda and have been impacted at how people in Uganda have difficulty accessing affordable healthcare for the simplest of needs. Upon our return to Australia we realized how good we have it here and wanted to do something about this inequity.
HCI are partnering with local community members in Wobulenzi, Uganda. This community of people are a part of the Emmaus Centre, established for over 20 years, who also provide other services to the local area such as a school and retreat centre. They have donated the land for the clinic and are committed to the upkeep and sustainability of the clinic once it is established. Together we aim to improve health, prevent disease and safeguard the livelihoods of people in the local community. This clinic will reach more than 2,500 people and will reduce the stress on the health care system in the area.
With the help of World Relief Australia we ask you if you would like to be involved in this project through your donation and/or service.
