“Vital medical services are now available not only to our sponsored students, but also to more than 1,800 community children attending Kamuli.”
Schools in Uganda serve much more than an education purpose. They are community hubs and often provide vital services such as healthcare to the children who attend.
When a Children of Uganda board member Ann Davis visited one of our partner schools, Kamuli Primary School, in 2015, the need hit home upon seeing the grave state of the school’s health clinic. Not only did the clinic lack enough medical supplies, equipment, beds, mattresses, benches and chairs for patients, but the structure itself was in desperate need of painting and repairs.
We began a passionate discussion of this vital project as soon as this board member returned to the US. Together with the school, we developed a plan to renovate the clinic to better serve the children and the wider community.
Through generous donations from Kristi and Shawn McLaughlin and many other Children of Uganda supporters, we began extensive renovations in 2015. Beds and chairs and abundant medical supplies were supplied and the facility completely upgraded.
The clinic was formally dedicated and operational shortly after the start of the new academic year.
We are proud of the ability to offer vital medical services not only to our sponsored students, but to more than 1,800 community children who also attend Kamuli.
We help you give a hand UP to Ugandan children and women in need + share the joy.
Each child who is educated, fed and safe is a strong foundation for peace.
Each self-supporting woman makes a community thrive. Each beat of music carries the joy of a nation.
