SIGMA AFRICA HEALTHCARE
The aim of the Sigma Africa Healthcare project is to make quality, affordable, effective, reliable and sustainable medical supplies available to NGOs, churches and not-for-profit hospitals and health centres in Africa. Alongside our fantastic partner Sigma Pharmaceutical Company, we’re sending medical stock from the UK to Africa to help establish healthcare services in remote villages, ensuring that they have access to essential supplies.
Sigma Africa Healthcare Program
Sigma Pharmaceutical Company has donated brand new medical supplies worth £82,860 which was shipped to Uganda on Saturday 25th Jan 2020. We would like to thank the directors, employees, and Sigma family for partnering with us to save the lives of disadvantaged families in Northern Uganda.
We would like also to thank Mr. Kirti Shah so much for arranging the donations of medical supplies from Sigma Pharmaceutical company. This has come at a perfect time because of the great need for medical supplies in the rural hospital and health centres we are providing in Northern Uganda. The donations from Sigma Pharmaceuticals Company will be properly utilised to provide essential quality healthcare for the less privileged people through our medical store in Lira district, Adwir Rural community hospital in Alebtong district, Almere Medical Aid Community Health Centre in Amolatar district and Abako Elim Community Health Centre in Alebtong district northern Uganda. We are looking forward to establishing long term partnerships with Sigma Independent to save the lives of underprivileged families in Uganda and Africa.
We were honoured and humbled to have the Conservative MP Hon. Dean Russell of Watford who gave his time to help in the loading of the container. The container was loaded in two hours and this was because of the help we received from Sigma staff team, together with volunteers from Shishukunj Harrow. The atmosphere was filled with the desire and willingness to support the humanitarian causes.
We would like to thank our partner Christian African Relief Trust for donating £5,865 to pay for the transportation of the container to Uganda. We would like also to thank our Uganda partners Medical Aid Uganda and All Nations Christian Care would agree to clear the container through customs, pay for storage, and container transportation of £2,500 from Kampala to Lira.
On behalf of the people in Uganda thank you all.
