Kristina Health Center Dedication Set for Aug. 25

Kristina Clinic & Julius
Kristina Clinic & Julius' Father's Home

Awake villagers await the formal dedication of Kristina Health Center on Aug. 25, 2012. Consisting of two buildings - a 10 room clinic and 4 unit living quarters, final preparations are in progress to complete the facility, bringing local healthcare for the first time to thousands. Uganda national leaders and Otuke district officials have been invited to witness this historic event which began with a dream by former Uganda Olympic runner Julius Achon as a result of the death of his mother Kristina - killed in 2004 during a Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebel attack. Julius' subsequently founded Achon Uganda Children's Fund (AUCF) which undertook the Kristina project in 2010.

Since the last report was filed, latrines are complete, living quarters furnishings delivered, equipment on order and solar power undergoing installation. Jimmy Okullo, Julius' brother and AUCF Uganda Operations Manager is overseeing the remaining tasks - purchase of supplies, medications and staff hiring during the next six weeks prior to Kristina Health Center's dedication. 
The opening of KHC would not be possible without the generous contributions of Nike and other GlobalGiving donors. Julius and the entire AUCF are ever grateful.for your financial support.
Please let us know what you think and come see Kristina Health Center if your future travel plans bring you to Uganda!
