The community of Migyera recently welcomed new staff to the St. Francis Health Center. Raphael Ibanda, the clinical officer joined the health team this past December. MILDMAY Uganda, a CALU partner and an NGO (Non government Organization) providing HIV care to clients in Migeyra, agreed to fund a nurse and a midwife thereby expanding the services the health center can provide to the community.
One of the major challenges for the health center and the local community is obtaining clean water due to the severity of this year’s dry season. The ongoing construction of the water project creates excitement among the staff and patients as access to plentiful, clean water is not too far off.
Although additional equipment and supplies are needed in the maternity unit like a fetal scope, a scale for weighing babies, and Oxygen concentrator, ambu bags, and a resuscitation table, there were seven deliveries in the month of December. With the addition of Eva Namuyanja, a midwife we expect more deliveries in the coming months. Additional donations will support equipment for the maternity unit and long term a minor surgery room.
