Public Health Improvement

In this program we carry out dental treatment, blood checkups and blood donations and other treatments as we can afford.

In Africa most especially in the rural areas most people cannot afford medical expenses and they end up using traditional drugs which at times may fail to work this is why in this way we  introduced a program of going to communities and giving treatments to people with in the communities. In this program we carry out dental treatment, blood checkups and blood donations and other treatments as we can afford.

Are you a confident speaker? Can you communicate important information in creative ways? Do you want to learn the reality on the ground regarding public health in Uganda? In this project, volunteers work alongside local counselors and health care professionals, in a variety of programs designed to help Ugandans stay healthy and make good decisions about their health care.

Volunteers talk to people in village meetings, private homes, and churches. They design seminars based on subjects that can include household hygiene, malaria prevention, safe sex, HIV prevention and AIDS care, substance abuse, domestic violence, etc. Basic training and educational materials are on site, but volunteers are encouraged to bring new materials as well.

This project requires walking long distances in the sun. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a sleeping bag, a hat, and walking shoes. Volunteers will be given a private room at the host organization as their home base. When work is done in surrounding villages, volunteers may be billeted short-term on site.
