Our new ambulance
In the past six months, we have completed construction on our second Staff Quarters building, and hired eight new staff members. This has greatly expanded our ability to treat patients. Further, we purchased an ambulance that is used both to transport patients to our clinic, and take critical patients to the hospital in Lira, Uganda.
Four years ago, AUCF dug two wells in Awake Village, changing life dramatically for villagers who used to hike miles to a stagnant pond, and making it possible for us to open the Kristina Health Center.
But as word spreads about KHC, more patients arrive every month, many with conditions that require serious treatment. We are thus taking on our next important project: bringing water to the clinic itself.
Today our dedicated support team fills basins at a pump 30 meters from the clinic and carries the water it to treatment rooms. Our medical team makes this work, but as anyone who has spent time in a hospital can tell you, a lack of running water is severely limiting.
We have set a goal of raising $30,000, the cost of this filtration and delivery system. Please help us reach this goal!
