GIVE TOWARD OUR COMPASSION FUND
Designated specifically to provide free life changing therapy to the most disadvantaged in the community.
There are numerous situations where families cannot afford the cost of medical treatment or transport to health centres, Our compassion fund allows us to meet the needs of the very poor in a timely manner.
When you give, nominate "compassion " in the description.
A DOCTORS SALARY
At Yotkom we are focussing on long term self reliance. In order to provide the highest quality health care and clinical supervision we need to employ more highly qualified Ugandan health professionals. The salary for a physician or skilled surgeon is over 6 times that of a primary health care worker but this is an essential investment in maintaining the highest quality care.
Your gift of $600 (AUS) per month will contribute 25% toward the the salary of a senior medical doctor.
GIFT AN EDUCATION
Currently we have donors who are sponsoring Ugandans to study Medicine, Anaesthetics, Physiotherapy, Radiology, Palliative Care, Hospital administration and Public Health.
Training local people helps build capacity and increases the number of highly qualified health professionals in isolated disadvantaged regions of Africa.
Donate and nominate "scholarships" in the description or email us for more details on building relationships with specific students doing particular courses.
HELP BUILD FUTURE INFRASTRUCTURE
