FIMRC's Project Bududa is located 150 miles east of the capital city of Kampala. Through our own clinic, we provide high quality medical services and health education resources to a catchment area of over 40,000 individuals.
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. Volunteers even have the unique opportunity to work in our maternity ward, where we deliver about 300 babies a year!
