ESSENTIAL HEALTHCARE FOR FAMILIES
In rural villages, many families fatally suffer from simple but curable diseases due to a lack of access to essential healthcare services. Along with some of our key partners, we are raising money to provide essential healthcare services to those suffering from physical and mental illnesses through health centres such as Adwir Medical Aid Uganda Community Hospital, Alemere Medical Aid Uganda Health Centre, and Abako Elim Community Health Centre.

Many Ugandan families are suffering from a lack of healthcare facilities essential for living healthy lives. MedAid UK is working closely with a selection of NGO partners to help communities by providing essential healthcare services for those suffering from physical and mental illnesses. Since visiting Africa in December 2000, we have helped and improve healthcare services that are available in many local communities within rural villages in Northern Uganda such as Adwir, Alemere and Abako Elim. We are currently constructing a health care centre in Loro, Oyam District in Northern Uganda.
Background on the project
Uganda is the third poorest country in the world (per GDP), with millions more slipping into poverty or born into poverty on an annual basis. The Uganda National Household Survey (2016/2017) found that the extreme poverty level rose from 19.7% in 2011 to 27% in 2017 (people living on less than $1.25 a day). Rural communities bear the disproportionate burden of that poverty, especially in the northern, eastern, and more remote regions of the country. Some rural areas outside of Kampala have at least a 60% extreme poverty rate.
Long-term impact of the project
Over 200,000 children healed of common diseases conditions such as malaria, pneumonia, cough etc. Easy access to medical services by the remote local communities resulting to timely diagnosis and treatment preventing unnecessary death. Sustainable, reliable, affordable and essential medicine provided to rural hospitals and health centers saving many lives of many children, women, elderly, people suffering from mental issues, people living with HIV/AIDs etc. Many children will receive vaccinations. Many people with mental illness treated and the quality of their lives improved. Many children given the opportunity to grow up healthy, giving them the opportunity to attend school and have a future. Pregnant mothers deliver safely in good medical facilities. Many people become aware of healthy living conditions and received support and treatment.
