Uganda Mission

During August 13-23, 2015 our medical team traveled to Uganda to provide free medical and dental care. This medical mission was particularly gratifying due to logistical challenges we faced. Before making our overseas trek, we were provided with a “Wishlist” by the area organizations we would ultimately reach.
  • Mulago Hospital desired medical devices for gallbladder surgeries.
  • Lira Hospital wanted to assistance in the department of dentistry and to help formulate a plan so that Lira Hospital could upgrade various medical Surgery, Nursing, and building a new Outpatient/Teaching Center.
  • The orphanages needed the necessities

Upcoming Missions

With difficulty accessing adequate medical care, many Ethiopians use traditional healing methods and medicines.  Indeed, “traditional” Ethiopian “healers” have been using ritual and herbal remedies to treat people for centuries.  It can be stated that many Ethiopian communities have far better access to traditional treatments, sold in the marketplace, than to government-run or private medical facilities.    Common illnesses in Ethiopia include malaria, tuberculosis, and respiratory infections.  

  •  Our goal is work with the Ethiopian government in establishing a medical facility that can be used to train medical personnel in the use of laparoscopic and endoscopic equipment.  The skills and talents acquired will be useful in treating disorders that women are affected by such as prolapsed uteri, vaginal fistulas,   cystoceles, rectoceles, and hemorrhoids.  We will also provide additional medical and dental care while onsite.
