FIMRC's Project Bududa, located 150 miles east of the capital city of Kampala, brings medical care to a community of approximately 10,000 residents. The clinic serves as home base where medical care is provided to patients of all ages.
Many issues plaguing the population are readily treatable with preventative measures, education, and continuous healthcare monitoring, which our volunteers help us provide. As a volunteer, you will work with our dedicated clinic staff through assisting with patient intake, observing patient examinations, and assisting in the pharmacy. Volunteers also work extensively in the community by traveling with our Community Health Educators on home visits, assisting with mosquito net treatments, and leading health education sessions in local schools and orphanages.
Over the course of your trip you'll receive an unfiltered experience in health care field work abroad, and learn about the tremendous impact that even one person can have!
