Medicine for HIV+ Children in Uganda

Supplies for a Clinic

There is a small clinic in the town of Mpumudde, Uganda.  Don't bother looking up Mpumudde because you won't find it.  Really, you won't.  Look for Jinja instead.  Close to Jinja - that is where Mpumudde is.  That is where a container of medical supplies sent by AFCA arrived this past week.

Yes, we send medicine for HIV+ children and their guardians.  But, we also do our best to send good quality medical supplies and equipment so that clinics like Mpumudde's can care for their patients with clean sutures and needles, good and sturdy hospital beds, new water filters, and hundreds of other items.

Since Mpumudde has been receiving AFCA medicine, I thought you'd like to hear about the gift of supplies they received.  They can't be happier!  The head doctor wrote us a note of thanks saying "our joy is too much to put in writing" and another doctor said "thank you for loving Uganda".  I couldn't say it better!

Thanks for your support of our kids!
