Summary

This ChangeALife Uganda project will finish building & provide medical supplies to a health clinic in Migyera. It will enable HIV/AIDS patients to receive treatment,prolonging their ability to work and care for their families. The clinic will also make healthcare accessible to children and families at risk of the deadly but treatable diseases of malaria, tuberculosis and sickness from unclean water. CALU will continue supporting education and microfinance programs with sustainability as a goal.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The 5000 residents of rural Migyera lack access to health care for the treatment of malaria, the number one cause of morbidity, acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, accidents, maternal complications and HIV/AIDS. Migyera, a hot spot for HIV due to its location on a truck route means the prevalence of HIV is higher than the general population. Needless deaths occur because people do not have easy access to basic medical care and drugs that prevent disease. This project provides access to care.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will fund the final construction of a health clinic in Migyera, just a few hundred feet from the St. Lawrence School, where many of our sponsored children attend, and near the homes of their families. Once built, equipped and staffed, this clinic will be the only reliable resource in the area for treating the health care needs of our students and their families. A clinical officer, midwife and nurses will provide health services including health education, prevention and treatment.

Potential Long Term Impact

The CALU program focuses primarily on educating children while embracing the goals of alleviating poverty through programs that provide education,health care and income generation projects. We have seen too many parents and children die due to HIV/AIDS and other preventable diseases. Our project will provide desperately needed health services and specifically a comprehensive HIV program so that the child and family can live to become change agents and alleviate poverty in the village of Migyera.
