CONTRIBUTE TOWARD

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.
