We are beginning the journey to launch a new type of medical mission! It is an empowering, community building approach to healthcare.
The Medical Mission
Our first project will be to build a clinic in Kyamosongi, Uganda, (near Fort Portal). As we move forward, three values will remain constant in all that we undertake:
Here We Gooooo!
Future Medical Mission Trips!!! Are YOU excited!?!?
- September/October 2018 – Construction mission, (build the clinic – and modified medical mission).
- January/February 2019 – Medical Mission
- July/August 2019 – Medical Mission
The focus of these teams is to instruct community health workers with a hands on clinical teaching approach. Teams will be multi-disciplinary. Community health workers will need to know how to take x-rays, perform labs, reconstitute medications, etc.
Medical mission team members will raise funds to cover their mission expenses as well as a portion of ongoing salaries of the community workers. Team members don’t just sign up for their time on the ground in Uganda. When they sign up for a mission with us they are agreeing to support the clinic for a minimum commitment of at least 5 additional days (2 hours per day max) of “medical traffic”.
Mission trips are approximately 10 – 14 days. Details would be similar to our Adventure Mission trips, with the addition of raising funds for ongoing clinic support and of course having a more intensive and focused mission related to medical service. As with our Adventure Missions, we also build in a day of rest and seeing a bit of the country of Uganda into every team.
