ACF Missions Inc. has been conducting medical outreaches in remote villages of Africa since 1998 and has served thousands of people during our summer missions’ trips during this period.
Presently, we hold community medical outreaches in remote villages and communities that lack health care services during our summer mission trips in Benin Republic and our two program sites (Fort Portal area and Kumi district) in Uganda.
The medical team consists of doctors and nurses from the United States and local medical practitioners.
In Uganda, with ACF Missions Inc. support, our local partner NGO, ACF-Uganda also conducts medical outreaches during December of every year in Kumi district.
The second component of our effort to help with the provision of health care in Africa is the construction and operation of health clinics. ACF Missions Inc. completed the construction of a medical clinic in Kigarama, Uganda which started providing services to the people in November 2013.
ACF Missions Inc. also started the construction of a second medical clinic in Kamenya, Kumi district in Uganda in August 2014.
Work is currently going on at the site and the physical structure of the clinic will be completed in 2015.
The construction of this clinic is projected to cost about $100,000.00. Extra fund will be needed to equip the clinic for full operation.
The Kigarama medical clinic currently has eight staff members and it costs about $2,500.00 every month to pay staff salaries and replenish the stock of drugs and medical supplies to adequately operate the clinic.
The clinic currently operates only the outpatient department, but will expand to the maternity and in-patients units in the near future. Two extra medical staff are needed for this expansion.
The ministry needs funds for these projects and will appreciate you support.
