Follow-up of the project

Date:                          March 26th 2021

General status:

The clinic construction is completed. The running clinic is headed by a registered comprehensive nurse and operates 24 by 7 hours in a week.

Progress since last status report:  

Because of the dry season, the clinic visits were at the low side which will soon change when the wet season starts after Easter. The clinic conducts screening of blood for e.g. malaria and has a microscope for other tests like worms, typhoid fever etc. It administers curative treaments like IV treatment, injections etc. Daily the temperature is taken from the boys and girls at the centre.
Services are also offered outside the church on Sundays (temperature measurement with the ‘gun’) and people with increased temperature are isolated for further investigation.

Financial status:

The project received 18.965 € (equal to 77.756.925 Uganda shillings) which is fully consumed by now.


As we only have 1 nurse the workload is too high as the clinic is open day and night. We currently don’t have the means for more people but as time goes on we shall be able.
