Due to poverty levels and the high cost of medical care, many families in the region are not able to access quality health care. To meet the medical needs of the people was our target and mission. Many local residents took advantage of this initiative and came in large numbers.

The Korean medical team could take good care of the patients because the team had visited and helped in Uganda many times and could gain many years of experience. In Blumni Church, about 476 patients came and were treated. Compared to last year fewer patients were coming because of the rain, but this was an advantage to the patients who came. The Doctors could spend more time with the patients to give various medical services, such as internal medicine, pediatrics, BOGY, and pain clinic.
In Lumino Church, about 704 patients came and were treated. As in Blumni, the patients could meet several doctors of different departments because there was more time to talk about their problems and illnesses.
The provision concerning post-operation care was made for the patients who underwent surgery. They will be given by the Doctor who works in the Masafu Hospital. The plastic surgeon, dentist, and ophthalmologist who worked in the Masafu Hospital appreciated hospital administration’s cooperation and support.
