Key Focus Areas
Enhancing the safety of Health Workers in Makindye Division
The fight against COVID 19 is real and given the situation, safety of the front liners has become a necessity, if we are to win the battle. In line with our areas of service, RC Muyenga, baby clubs RC Muyenga Tank hill and RC Muyenga Sunday Sunset, have embarked on a joint effort to provide face shields at all the referral hospitals within Makindye District, starting with Kiruddu National Referral Hospital and Nsambya Hospital.
Saving Mothers & Children
Re-igniting our Service to Kabule Community! Visiting Kabule Health Centre 111 project was an eye opener as it is both historical (started in the 1980s) and has sizeable land to give it potential to grow into a club signature project. The visit was innovative as it set a public forum for the community to provide input into the needs’ assessment.
The preliminary findings show that Kabule Health Centre III has a need to expand its inpatient and outpatient facilities, improve health care service delivery by setting up a fully equipped laboratory, operating theatre, maternity ward and amenities that are essential in providing effective health care.
Creating Water & Sanitation Opportunities for the Communities in Kamwewa
Kamwewa Water & Sanitation Project groundbreaking, in partnership with RC Wobulenzi, RC Calgary, Canada & RC Vienna Austria. This project will provide solar powered boreholes to 3 parishes, water harvesting & 6 sets of sanitary facilities to six schools.
NAKAKONGE & KIRINDI
The populations of Nakakonge and Kirindi are about 4000 to 5000 people and the great proportion of these is under 18 years old and of school going age. There are a number of schools of varying quality but which suffer from the basic lack of infrastructure – toilets, classrooms and reading materials. Many of the classrooms we visited were temporary wooden structures and the toilets were planned for about a half to a quarter of the number that uses them. The villages also lack safe clean drinking water. The waters of the River Nile are heavily polluted and are about 2 to 5 kilometers from most homes.
