Anyone can fall sick anywhere at anytime. We believe in improving the quality of life of patients irrespective of their diagnosis, status, offering dignity, care, love, peace and support to those at the end of life and their families.
Uganda has approximately 250,000 patients in need of palliative care and are not in hospitals but in their homes and communities. Most of the doctors in Uganda are operating from hospitals which are usually far from patients' homes. The number of health workers is extremely low in rural areas. Patients in rural areas have to travel long distances if they are to access health care. Professional health workers are scarce in rural areas because there are no hospital where they can operate from. Rural communities are denied access to restricted medicines and health care in general yet the majority of Ugandans live in rural areas.
What we want to do.
We are seeking to raise USD $ 1000 to kick start the construction of Hospice Kaliro at our site in Namusolo village Kaliro district to provide specialist palliative care for inpatient and day care services for the rural communities in Kaliro district, eastern Uganda. Hospice Kaliro will save rural communities from travelling long distances to access care, they will be in position to access professional health workers, restricted medicines and atleast have a center where terminally ill patients can be taken care of with dignity and love.
