Clinic Outreach and Workshops
The doctors and medics from the University of Slovenia Tropical Medical School have been working hard at our clinic on Bwama Island and in addition are also running small outreach clinics and health workshops in the community.
Last week they visited The Full Gospel Church in Kabale. The Church run a street children rehabilitation program in partnership with Koinonia ministries.They have 15 children who live at the church full-time and 10 or more who come during the day.
The day the doctors arrived there were a total of 27 children and they were taught about how to prevent diseases by practicing good hygiene, dental hygiene, nutrition, and HIV prevention.
All the children were medically examined and treated where necessary, they had their teeth examined and 6 children had teeth extracted.
Everyone was given a tooth-brush and toothpaste and the project was giving de worming tablets for the children.
The doctors will be returning to do HIV testing next week.
Thanks to our Operations Manager, George, for organising this workshop and special thanks to the doctors.
