Reaching out–Our new Mobile Medical Clinic

Standard

Announcing Our New Initiative –The Mobil Medical Clinic

Health care in our area of Uganda is lacking for many, but for orphaned children it is non-existent. Most of the children in surround in gorphanage homes haven ever had a medical examination. In our efforts to improve the health of Ugandan children, we have developed a Mobil Medical Clinic that will visit orphanage homes and schools, examine the children, begin medical records, and work to treat health concerns that are found. We began with three excellent doctors from Spain: Dr. Sara Gayoso (GeneralPractitioner), Dr. Rocio Garcia de Arboleya (GeneralSurgery) and Dr. Eduardo Garcia Soblechero (Pediatrician), who visited 7 different locations and examined 120 children. Their preliminary findings were that most of the children suffered from malnutrition, illnesses related to infantile malnutrition, and dental disease.

The doctors also met with local medical centers which have agreed to support our mobile clinic, and have begun the important collaboration process with the orphanage homes and schools where these children reside.

With communication begun and files started, the doctors have returned to Spain to analyze the data and present us with their findings. We will then continue to work with doctors from both Spain and the US to grow our fledgling Mobil Clinic and take the necessary steps to improve the health of as many Ugandan children as possible.
