Hallo friends,

We want to update you with our first 6 months of full operations! From January through June, we saw 1452 patients in the Karin Medical Centre in Agonga, Gulu and 3,023 patients at the Childcare Community
Health centre our second health centre based in Unyama in Gulu  2,451 females and 572 males. Our staff has
been working hard! 

We are all proud of the work that we do ," On the 24th of June, with the request from another community based organisation we held a surgical medical camp that was run by the local community members. They choose our
clinic to work from! How proud we felt!

Our staff had never had this opportunity and we were privileged and honored to host this event, because it would give our staff members the opportunity to carry our male circumcision, cervical cancer screening and HIV testing and
counselling. The waiting room and the surrounding area was was packed, but the staff immediately sprung into action. Ms Filder Anek the incharge medical officer worked as the assistant surgeon with Dr William. They worked as a team as Filder learnt from him as well.  Grace the midwife worked with the women who wanted to do cervical cancer screening after carrying out a small health education to them. Moses and Aaaron worked in the
Laboratory to get everyones details recorded and all the testing carried out accordingly, whilst Moses our administrator kept people people occupied with more health talk. On this day we called a volunteer clinician to see who we needed to be treated urgently and who could wait, and Robert continued to clerk and book in the patients who were waiting before 7 a.m. Our staff made a good effort to accommodate what we could, and that means a lot!"

We also have community volunteers who helped with immunisation for babies and expectant mothers eager to help us out – next week we shall continue with the family health day . Every day there are new challenges and
new gains – and it continues to be a great honor to do this work.

We are proud because you make it happen! Thanks to all of you for walking by our side on this meaningful journey.

Great Blessings,

N.B. We always have equipment needs at the clinic. If any of you works for an organization that may be able to help us, please let me know! You can contact me directly anytime at:
