Later than hoped, MAI has been able to pass the first tranche of money to the project run by FADO-T to provide palliative care to the poor rural communities in Ngora, Uganda. The charity began its work some time ago but has failed to find consistent sources of funding until agreeing this new partnership with MAI.
MAI has also struggled to raise the agreed budget but – thanks to the generosity of many MAI supporters – the first grant has been transferred with much rejoicing in Ngora!
A fully qualified nurse – Rose Aliano – is now employed and she has been provided with a motorbike so she can get around and supervise the work adequately. She is preparing to visit the Health Workers in the photograph.
10 Community Volunteer Health Workers finally have a small stipend, a bicycle to reach clients and funds for consumables. Initially, the 10 will care for 100 clients. In the first full month of renewed operation, most of these have been identified and care has commenced.
