Help women like Gloria prevent and treat malaria

A women’s Group in Katulikire meets to discuss their ongoing projects and give out loans. The women’s group was established to provide the women with small loans so that they may undertake economic opportunities to allow them to be more self-sufficient. On this day when I met with the women’s group they discussed their economic needs and request loans. This aunt requested a loan. Her niece was hospitalized and needed help paying the bill. Please help us prevent malaria. Please help us bring quality, affordable healthcare to rural Uganda. Not only is it life saving, but affordability allows for access and protects families from life-altering medical bills.

The ambulance

Good, affordable healthcare can be challenging to find in rural Uganda. In Katulikire, the local health center is able to provide many, but not all, services. When patients suffer from diseases that cannot be treated at the Health Center, the ambulance ensures that the patients get to a center where they can be treated. 

According to the World Health Organization, more than 99% of pregnancy-related deaths occur in low-and middle-income countries such as Uganda. 6% of maternal deaths are due to pre-eclampsia/eclampsia, which is second to only post-partum hemorrhage as a cause of death.

This mother arrived to Katulikire Health Center in pre-term labor, delivered a premature baby, and then required transfer away from the center for pre-eclampsia. Our goal is to grow and improve Katulikire Health Center so that we can treat these patients without transfer. We know we can provide them with good, affordable health care. 

Thank you for supporting the mother's and infants of Katulikire.

Providing treatment for malaria

In addition to preventing malaria, we are working to provide the best possible care to each patient in rural Uganda. We have broken ground on a new hospital for Katulikire, which will provide treatment for Malaria.  The clinic currently provides vaccines to children. We hope to expand the available services in rural Uganda.  These mothers walk miles to get to our clinic.  They walk to provide health, safety, and a better future for their children. We hope to help them accomplish this goal each child at a time. We will continue working until each child in Katulikire is afforded the healthcare that he or she needs.
