Prayer,dedication and celebration as we set aside our land for construction

 Yotkom Uganda  team and medical staff from the medical clinic have gathered together on the construction site to celebrate in true African style , thankful for the provision of funds for building and praying for a smooth construction over the next six months.
Builders will commence work within a week.

On Tuesday the 3 rd march the Yotkom directors unanimously agreed to accept the building quotation from Andrew kilama to construct the medical centre.
A contract has been signed and the site handed over to the building company.
The completion date within 6 months.

Meanwhile, medical work continues at the clinic. Children are being vaccinated  regularly against preventable  diseases like polio hepatitis b, pneumonia ,tetanus, and pertussis.

Today we vaccinated a man against rabies after he sustained a dog bite.
A child aged 2 travelled from the Sudan border to seek medical care at our clinic. The young girl had malaria and most likely worm infestation leading to severe anaemia  and malnutrition. ( she weighed only 8 kg )
