I have been involved with CACHA since 2007 in various capacities. I started as an office and warehouse volunteer, and eventually continued to work as an intern, a bookkeeper, a finance coordinator, an interim executive director, a mission coordinator, a project lead and a mission lead. Our last mission to Kamengo, Uganda in the spring 2020 was cut short after 3 days of service due to the global COVID-19 pandemic; we were fortunate to catch the very last flight out of Entebbe, Uganda. I am beyond excited that it is now safe to return this coming Spring 2023 to provide free healthcare services to local residents who have been inquiring about CACHA’s return since the last time we were there.
CACHA’s medical missions have been successful because of the positive relationship with the local partners at Ggoli Health Centre and Nkozi Hospital who work respectfully and closely with Canadian healthcare providers. The medical mission is supported by village healthcare workers, clinical officers, midwives and Canadian and Ugandan nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, physicians, surgeons and logisticians, all who work very hard as a team for 9 clinical days to provide the local people free primary healthcare, eye examinations and reading glasses, HIV, malaria and syphilis testing, dental extractions, surgeries and of course free medications.
All of services provided would not be possible without your help so kindly donate what you can knowing we are making a positive difference.
