Summary

Karin Community Initiatives needs to provide village outreach services to at least 2000 people in traditional rural villages around its medical clinics in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Village outreach programs - where clinical staff visit remote villages - are the backbone of health in the community,providing vital services that often save lives. We need medication and equipment to provide services and education to these communities that have no other health facilities to rely on.

Challenge

Over 20,000 people live in rural villages around our medical clinics in Unyama and Agonga. Many of these villages are further than 10 miles away with no electricity or running water, and are accessible only by narrow and dangerous dirt road. People are unable to walk to our clinics for vital health services because of poor health, distance, challenging weather and lack of awareness. With the onset of the rain season, a spike in life threatening illnesses is occurring.

Solution

Village outreach programs are proven as the most successful method of engaging the community in health services and education. By increasing outreaches to more communities, we can provide life saving treatment and preventative health education, ensuring communities remain healthy and stable throughout the critical rainy season where illness's sharply rise. Children and adults will learn the best practices to care for themselves and their families, creating a healthier community.

Long-Term Impact

By increasing village outreach services, we expect to service approximately 2000 people, most of whom are young children under 10 years old. This will ensure that they are able to receive immediate attention for illnesses that could affect their attendance at school or even their lives. Communities will particularly benefit from the widespread preventative health education which will ensure that they are able to safeguard themselves from future sickness.
