BENEFITING: US2UGANDA4LIFE

Catharina Wolde-Yohannes

THE STORY:

We all know that washing hands is the best precaution against spreading disease. Any medical center must have a reliable water supply. Kalungi Medical Center has for many years relied on a distant local well, and rainwater to be piped into the exam rooms and bathrooms in the clinic and on the wards. We have finally found a company that can dig a well large enough to supply clean water via a pressurized pumping system to the whole compound of the Medical Center, Nursing school and dormitories!    

"Sweden-Uganda Aid", www.sweduga.se, is ready to start as soon as we have the funds. Please help reach this goal asap!

Please visit our website www.US2UGANDA4life.org. There you can find all the information about what we do and read about the Medical Center, the nursing school, Jireh Children's Home, trips and sponsor programs.

Thanks to all of you who supported us in raising close to $3000 for the protective brick wall around the area last year. It is almost complete and led to the center having their own brick making plant. Much cheaper than having bricks transported from outside for any construction work.

With your help we can do it again! Toyota in Southern California may match the donations we raise again.

More information:

I have been involved in Kalungi Medical Center as a physician and supporter since 2009, when I lived in California. I visit almost every year with a team of medical staff.  US2UGANDA4life, a not-for-profit organization, was formed in 2010. Through the years we have seen an incredible progress and improvement of the facility, including the nursing school that started in 2011. Thanks to our donors! 

100% of donations, go to the goals we set, at the clinic and the children's home. Yet there is no running water to the facilities. When the present wells are insufficient and rainy season is over, the staff, children and nursing students have to carry extra water from far in heavy containers. It takes time away from work and studies.

Please visit www.us2uganda4life.org. Thank you for taking the time and interest, and for your contribution, (tax deductible in the US).

We, Dr Peter Kizza and the people of Kalungi surely appreciate it.

Thank you.

Catharina
