Mbale, Uganda Clinical Rotation

I'm excited to share that I will be completing a 4 week clinical rotation in Mbale, Uganda in January 2020! I will be working alongside other medical professionals to provide care to the beautiful children of Mbale at a few of their local clinics. One of the duties I'm responsible for as a participant in this program is to raise a minimum of $500 in donations that will given to one of our non-profit partners working in Uganda, organizations that are often too small to accept international donations themselves. 




Every little bit counts because even a few dollars can go quite far to provide healthcare in Uganda. To give you some perspective, feel free to review the following figures:

 • 33¢ = a course of amoxicillin for a baby with pneumonia 

 • 50¢ = a full topical treatment for a child with a fungal rash 

 • $1 = tea and lunch for a health worker working hard all day at a clinic 

 • $2 = a full course of malaria treatment for an adult or child 

 • $3 = transport cost for a highly trained health worker to travel to a rural village for outreach services 

 • $5 = enough kerosene to light a delivery room at night for 2 weeks 

 • $10 = the cost of a mosquito net to prevent malaria for 2 years 

 • $12 = rain boots, rain coats and a water bottle needed by outreach workers to reach their rural communities 

 • $200 = monthly drug costs of a rural clinic open 2 days per week  




With this information in mind, I hope you will consider donating! NONE of this money will be used for my own personal travel expenses. I have applied for a few scholarships for that purpose but if you're feeling extra generous or have some wealthy friends who want to help me out then please contact me separately! :)
