RE: SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER   2016 PROJECT REPORT TO GLOBAL GIVING.

Rwenzori Rural Health Services (RRHS) appreciates GlobalGiving for supporting this community clinic in Rukoki Sub County, Kasese –District - Uganda East Africa. Below is an update of the impact that has been realized in the period starting September-December 2016, through your support; where the lives of 7276 people have continued to be touched.

Achievements within quarter September-December 2016.          

Women that came for daily antenatal services-109

Deliveries performed- 6   (The number of deliveries is small because we did not have a midwife at the centre)

Outpatient- 517

Income realized from Clinic, user fees, in this quarter Ugx: 3,589,500/=

Income rose by the village bank and in circulation. The village bank helps members to solve immediate pressing needs- Ugx: 3,190,000

During the period; 81 in patients were brought for admission and received the care they needed.

We have established an online partnership with www.givingway.com  which is an online fundraising platform and have created a profile their on.

Community members have continued to plan for the clinic where they have agreed to continue paying subsidized costs for the services they get at the clinic. The user fees paid is used for re-stocking of drugs, administrative costs and paying off monthly allowances for the Nurses.

I am extremely happy to report that in this period, we received a Donation worth $ 2000 from Heidi; Eric’s wife from USA for supporting a project: Equipping a Medical Laboratory at Rwenzori Rural Health Services Clinic with test Kits and reagents; for which we appreciate. With the support from Eric’s wife.

Among other supplies; we acquired

An HB Machine, Erythrocytes sedimentation rate; tested 342 rural women and 175

Men of blood smear for malaria, urinary infections, hepatitis B and HIV/AIDS.

The project left us having created close partnership with a medical doctor. The doctor has agreed to continue relating with RRHS for technical advices. His intervention has been valued by the entire community and we shall maintain the relationship created. During implementation of the project, we learned that Hepatitis B Virus and HIV are now leading killer diseases in our operation area, and has no active partner talking about their prevention measures.  At the closing meeting of recent laboratory project, the implementing team resolved to develop a separate new project proposal for providing to RRHS Medical Laboratory - Hepatitis B and HIV supplies to test 3000 people in the coming year 2017. It was further said “the project will sensitize, prevent, and refer the victims to Hospitals. Then the document will be routed through FCDE Kasese office and be shared accordingly.”

Despite the successful running of the clinic, we’re still seeking funding to:                                                                                                                                                        

 Challenges.

Purchase of drugs in bulky - for various conditions.

To find a means of covering up the allowances of one Nurse for at least (12) months.

Constructing a latrine at the Clinic for excreta disposal.

Once the above activities are successfully done, the clinic will provide quality services as expected by the Uganda Ministry of Health.

Thank you very much again, for supporting RRHS towards achieving its objective of improving rural health services.

Success stories:-

My names are Biira Jetrida; a resident of Kabughabugha Lower village. I must say thank you RRHS for planning a health care Clinic in this area. At my age of 48; I have never seen a medical Doctor in this area, sharing health experiences with rural based people.  “It is a challenge for many in this area for such a medical Doctor to offer his time; talking to people about the value for good health.  Thank you again, RRHS / Charles; thank you to the Donors and the Doctor. Maintain the spirit of “offering.”

My Names are Mbambu  Jonolesi a resident of Kibolhu Village. My happiness for having RRHS –Clinic in this area, makes me surprised. The clinic which stated as a small think, is now offering laboratory services. I came to be tested for malaria, shortly after 30 minutes, I received my results. And started treatment straight away; for which I appreciate. I thank everyone who has given time and resources to this project. It is my wish that RRHS takes my words to all concerned persons. This being the only inpatient clinic in this area, it is my prayer that is should grow big and reach many people.

My names are Martine Ngene: The chairperson Kigoro 1 Community Savings and Credits Group. In the name of the entire community, I have to very much thank RRHS and friends for developing our area.  RRHS has build capacity of some people in this area and have organized a Savings and credits group that looks at community empowerment strategies. Recently, we participated in a project of  Soy value addition for reduced malnutrition among children and pregnant mothers. Mostly my 25 group members acquired practical skills in nutritive Soy Preparation for which we appreciate; and request RRHS to continue tracing more friends to come to our village.

My name is  Muhindo, the second name will not be reviled: I strongly that the Management RRHS  and her partners for starting the Medical Laboratory testing centre. If RRHS was not there, I would have died.  “At RRHS Clinic, I tested for Hepatitis B and the results were positive.  The RRHS –Laboratory technician quickly referred me for further tests, and by now new results are showing that I will not die. Thank you Charles/ Thank you RRHS and partners. May you all be pleased in your work.  I will continue talking good about this clinic.

Achievements within quarter.

Our nursery school started last term (3rd term) successfully with 104 pupils (34 in baby class, 39 in middle and 31 in top class) with the age of 6 years and below.

Basing on the results from the monthly and termly pupils class room assessment report, there was high improvement in the performance.

A local and temporally latrine was established at the nursery school from the parents’ initiative to serve the pupils hygiene for the mean time.

The community members continued making more bricks where by more 8324 bricks were made. The community members still have the initiative to continue providing the causal support to the success of the project.

Snow Rural Community Development team of Executive Board members and staff representatives still played their role of monitoring the project performance.

Challenges faced.

The nursery school local latrine remained collapsed and sunk underground. This resulted   from the bad effects of the heavy rains experienced in the area during the course of the term is not yet permanently constructed that is what only the parents put in place is temporally and also not very desirable. During the rainy season of October -December, latrine services at the nursery school have been very challenging subjecting the pupils to unhygienic situations.

Other pupils are still undergoing training in grass thatched class rooms whose conditions not healthy for the pupils proper learning more especially during the rainy season when it leak.

Future plans.
