The Kasozi Children’s Community Clinic, open since February 22, 2019, is still in the process of being recognized as a pediatric medical facility forthe surrounding district. Many locals have a mistaken impression that the clinic was built to serve Kasozi children only. To rectify this misconception, clinical staff and nurses have been going out into the community to inform people about the Clinic. Our nurses have had the opportunity to treat a range of illnesses from malaria and upper respiratory tract infections to open wounds.
After an outreach to an area called Kabukye, clinical officer Fiona said, “One general thing we have realized is that the people really are poor. For example, you find a woman with seven children struggling to raise them all by herself—from providing food, to clothing, and medical bills. It really overwhelms them.”
Fiona recounts another interaction with a grandmother, trying to care for five children. “As we treated her sick children, she shed tears and thanked us so much for reaching and touching her. We prayed with her and left. That’s how great a work the donors have done. God bless them in their giving.”
INDEED, GOD BLESS ALL OF OUR DONORS. UGANDA ORPHANS FUND IS SO VERY GRATEFUL!
