Back to the Clinic
We had another wonderful day today, Monday, but it was very full and we are extremely tired so this will be short. Today was our final outreach/clinic day. We were in Kiyindi, which is a landing site for the ferry and the many fishermen. We started the morning with a tour of the clinic and school that is run by International Needs, then together with a number of CHAP staff and volunteers we helped facilitate an event that allowed many to get tested for HIV as well as accessing other services.
We all played different roles and found ways to support the overall goal of getting patients cared for. At the end of the day:
- 128 discovered their HIV status (unfortunately 6 were positive)
- 161 were given deworming tabs
- 22 people had teeth extracted
More importantly I believe this was a time when Jesus name was declared and we as a team were able to serve and love in his name.
Enjoy a few photos from the day!
Good night, Team Uganda!
