I just cannot say enough about our team of professionals that traveled to Uganda with Volunteers4Humanity
We all got along so well and have many pictures, videos, and stories to tell.
Our typical day started at 8:00am. We were transported to Lira hospital and then our team dispersed into their area of expertise. The OBGYNs went to the gynecology ward to evaluate pre and post surgical patients. The dentist usually visits the various clinics since his day starts at 9:00am. The rest of the team head to the surgical area.
Because our operating rooms do not currently have "high-performance" surgical lighting, when darkness presents, our day concludes. After work, most of the team would venture into the city, eat, and socialize with the indigenous inhabitants. At no time did any of our team members feel threatened or experienced "cultural trepidation". "I really miss the children of Lira Town an am anxiously awaiting approval for our next mission"!
Your tax deductible donations will go to providing the area residents with medical supplies, medications, clean water/milk, and clothing.
Lira Hospital(LRRH) is the trauma center/primary hospital in Northern Uganda. Serving a metropolitan area of over 4 million people, serviced by a 415 Bed facility, it is easy to understand the predicament the LRRH faces. In addition, LRRH lacks defibrillators, ECG/EKG, CT/MRI, ventilators(for both surgery and the intensive care unit), surgical supplies, instruments and instructors for advance medical/dental didactic sessions.
Your donation of $10, $25, $50, $100 or more will go a long way in helping the residents of the war-torn,"ravished" city and it's hospital(LRRH)
