Building Health and Wealth for women and children

In the previous year, Our outpatient diagnosis (OPD) for our two health facilities registered 3,453 patients for Agonga health facility and 3,360 patients for Unyama health facility totalling to 6,813 cases . Out of this, over 370 children have been immunised at our health facilities. Malaria which had the highest prevalence was at 1,676 higher than what was registered in 2016. Cough among children amounted to 826 cases and Pneumonia reduced to 263 cases.


As you can see, we are already on our path to building a healthier community with resilience. A community where mothers and children can access basic quality health care at an affordable cost.

We strongly believe that no mother should die while giving birth in this current generation. Bringing life to into this world should not suddenly result into an end of a mother's life. On 29 December 2018, 3 months from now, we launched our first annual fundraising dinner, a medical camp and charity run to raise money for equipping our new maternity ward at our health facility in Unyama, Gulu - Uganda. We were mesmerised by the huge support from the local community and other stakeholders. Mothers in Gulu now have hope for safe deliveries.

Despite the challenges, our continued community outreaches together with village health teams (VHT) continue to encourage mothers to take their children for routine immunisation. Our community outreach programs continue to play a vital role in educating families about nutrition. This explains the increase in the number of immunised children compared to the previous year. Outreach programs are also being used to senstize the community about our community health insurance (CHI), an insurance scheme we started to help mothers access healthcare at the lowest cost possible.

With your continued support, we are certain that women and children in our community will have the opportunity to access quality healthcare and live healthier lives. Vital drugs will be available in our health facilities and modern equipment will be acquired. When families are healthy, they are economically productive and can build wealth for-themselves.

Please continue supporting this project – you’ll help so many women and their families fight the malaria epidemic in our community and live productive lives.
