Clinic Treats High Volume of Patients with Malaria

Agwata clinic patients waiting in line - late May

Our northern Uganda clinic continued to experience extremely high numbers of malaria patients during the June to August period. Normally, this is a drier time of year and malaria cases are less. But this year has been one of the wettest, rainiest June to August periods  in over 30 years. As a result, many people got malaria.

The photo shows the front veranda of the clinic with patients waiting in line in late May. We have since purchased more clinic benches so family groups can be more socially distanced as they wait. 

We are thankful for your support of this project so that we can continue to keep the clinic stocked with needed medicines even during this unexpectedly high usage period.  At the same time, the clinic has been busy upgrading its sanitation proecedures and making other improvements which will be beneficial as the number of covid cases continues to rise in Uganda. So far, covid cases in the clinic's sub-county have been low.  

We are working on completing the separate latrines for clinic patients to use which will be separate from the latrinces used by clinic staff.  Our project coordinator who uses our project vehicle has continued to spend much of his time transporting seriously ill patients to the nearest hospital which is about an hour away. 

We were asked to do this by the district since public transport was shut down for a long time and even now, motorcycles that people normally hire for transport have been severely restricted in their operation. And the weather has made some of the local roads impassable to motorcycles. We are thankful our project vehicle has been able to make it through okay.

Our clinic is continuing its outreach to twenty needy, older women in the parish (like a county) who need assistance with food, and blankets to keep them warm as the cooler and wettest rainy season approaches.

Thanks again for your support in helping the clinic meet the needs of the parish's residents in these challenging times!

We would very much appreciate it if you could share this report with friends, families or co-workers that you think might be interested in helping with the village's women and children with their health needs!
