Purchase a microscope for the Karin Clinic

A microproject by Karin Community Initiatives Uganda


The Karin Clinic laboratory technician, Simon has been struggling with an old refurbished microscope. This makes certain diagnoses more difficult. He needs a new one. The microscope enables the ability to more efficiently diagnose malaria as well as other infectious diseases.

monthly donors


The current microscope is old and worn out. No longer providing the accurate test results. Many times the clinicians and nurses are unable to provide treatment because we do not have a microscope. Patients are sent away to another clinic and many miles away. This discourages patients and many are not able to travel far away.


The microscope will improve diagnoses and confidence of patients in the treatment given to them

Long-Term Impact

The project will achieve strong improvements in the diagnoses of many illnesses including malaria, HIV/AIDS, thyroid etc..
