Kristina Clinic Buildings Complete

Kristina Clinic and Living Quarters
Kristina Clinic and Living Quarters
Julius and I depart this evening for the USA. We had a successful Uganda trip and highlights are as follows:
Kristina Clinic activity:
* Kristina Clinic and living quarters are virtually complete and look great - beyond our expectations - see attached photo
* we have over a dozen qualified applications to fill the clinical officer, comprehensive nurse and nurse assistant positions
* clinic and living quarter latrines dug and currently under construction for both buildings
* solar power negotiations and specifications completed with installation for the clinic and living quarters starting April 23 week
* furnishings for the living quarters and clinic selected - durable and attractive
* a low power medical refrigerator/freezer was selected; it is the same unit used by Engeye Health Center, our sister facility near Masaka
* completed a plan to landscape the health center grounds including pavers around both buildings and grass beyond providing an attractive and dust/mud resistant facility
* spent a full day at Engeye to learn and consult with Dr. Kathy Chang and her husband Joseph Freeman a pharmacist; they are Americans spending 18 months (6 thus far) at Engeye
We look forward to the grand opening and dedication of Kristina Clinic on August 25, 2012
