Responding to the impact of COVID-19 in Bwindi

CC

Bwindi hospital has piloted taking essential drugs to vulnerable patients in 101 villages in our catchment area. These patients who are already immune suppressed are not able to travel to the hospital to access the medicine due to the travel restrictions put by the government to curtail the spread of COVID-19. A team of 6 nurses goes out to the community every day, so that these vulnerable patients can carry on receiving the care they need. Unfortunately, we do not know how long this will last, however, we would need $27,000 to run this activity for the next three months.
