RE: JUNE- AUGUST 2016 PROJECT REPORT FOR GLOBAL GIVING

Snow Rural Community Organization (SRCDO) is very happy to update you on the activities we carried on during the project period June-August 2016.

Achievements within this quarter.

Our nursery school started this term successfully with 105 pupils (34 in baby class, 38 in middle and 33 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 girls’ performance. However, the boys also performed well in the games and sports including other coculicular activities.

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 6000 bricks were made. The community members still have the initiative to continue providing the causal support to the success of this project.

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

Challenges faced.

The nursery school local latrine 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 the one that parents put in place is temporally and also not very desirable.

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

Future plans.

  • Snow Rural Community Development Organisation will   continue making strategies for making sure that the 3 good class room block, a toilet, urinal places and an office block are put in place.
  • Snow Rural Community Development Board of Directors, staff and volunteers will continue mobilizing the community member to mold more 40000 bricks.
  • The parents of the pupils that are accessing education agreed to pay small co-funding. The money will be used to maintain the teachers and procure learning materials
  • We plan to fully introduce the idea of school gardens which will be parent lead that where different food crops will be grown for the pupils to start getting simple food at school so that their nutrition can be improved for good academic standards.
  • Snow Rural Community Development Organisation team will continue monitoring the project. The team will also continue advising where necessary.

Below is an update of the impact that has been created in the period starting 13th May 2016, to 12th August 2016; through your support; where the lives of 7276 people have continued to be touched.

Impact realized between 13th May 2016 to 12th August 2016

Approximate Percentage of persons not willing to deliver in a Health facility.

Income realized from Clinic, user fees, in three months. 2,053,200/=

Income raised by the village bank and in circulation. 2,150,000/= 

The village bank helps members to solve immediate pressing needs, occurring any time.
 


Community members have continued to plan for the clinic where they agree to continue paying subsidized costs for the services they get at the clinic. The user fees paid is used for restocking of drugs and paying off monthly allowances for the Nurses. Although it is not always enough.


I am happy to report that in this period, we created partnership with Vitamin Angels Organization - and supplied freely Vitamin A Supplement and dewormers to 257 children less than five years; Cared for 39 in patients that were brought in while severely sick and 162 out patients.

During this period again, the international operations manager; (FCDE) visited our Clinic project to discuss progress and took a short video clip to share with other intending partners. We have received a massage from foundation For community development and empowerment, Kasese –Office announcing the approval of funds to help us equip a medical laboratory test centre at RRHS Clinic for which are extremely pleased.

Despite the successful running of the clinic, we’re still seeking funding for Reasons,

Facilitate Nurses during Outreach services in difficult to reach areas; taking Health services and medication. ( Such as Kisondo Village)

Lack of enough Drugs/ Stock

Limited Financial resources.

The user fees patients pay on Discharge is not enough to maintain routine purchase of drugs and payment of Nurse allowances.

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

There is need to be supported to pay off allowances of one Nurse for at least 12 Months.

Constructing a latrine at the Clinic for excreta disposal. For reducing transmission of diseases. The current pit latrine is in a sorry state.

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:-


I personally thank the lord for leading the Director Mr. Charles RRHS to our community, we look at Charles as a savior, because he initiated a clinic, linked FCDE, and Global giving to this community to mention a few. We are indeed very pleased. On 20 July 2016 at my home, I survived death after taking plenty of alcohol. I was brought at RRHS for treatment while in a critical condition. A few hours while at RRHS Clinic, I recovered and said “I was dying this clinic has come to safe our lives.” Said by Masereka Jocknus


 I thank the management RRHS for starting the clinic in our area. My daughter has been admitted to this clinic three times since November 2014. Because the clinic is near my home, I find it very easy to take care of the sick, and the young ones that are left at home. It continues to be my prayer that this clinic should prosper up to the extent of performing caesarian sections and laboratory services. We are so for great full for the services rendered.
