American-Based NGO Sends Emergency Medical Relief to Uganda
Date:12/29/2008

In the slums of Jinja, the second largest city in Uganda, healthcare is particularly scarce. Through PROJECT C.U.R.E.'s partnership with the Agatha Foundation Medical Center, approximately $1 million worth of medical supplies and equipment will be placed into the hands of doctors in Uganda, enhancing their ability to provide improved diagnostics, treatment and care for thousands of people. The first container, filled with nearly $380,000 worth of medical relief will be sent to equip Jinja medical center.

(Vocus) December 29, 2008 -- Sometimes a nightmare disrupts our sleep; we are jarred awake. In Uganda, escaping the living nightmare is not so simple, until someone decides it must end. It is here that PROJECT C.U.R.E. steps in, meets partners and works with them to deliver health and hope into situations devastated by war, natural disaster, poverty and disease.

In the slums of Jinja, the second largest city in Uganda, healthcare is particularly scarce. Like the rest of the country, 50% of the population of the city is children under the age of 15. The biggest challenge is treating them: orphans and orphans caring for siblings, some of them mothers themselves. These young children, living with the sexual exploitation and violence in slums, are particularly vulnerable to increased health risks, particularly HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. They are desperate for someone to come and end their nightmare and provide the help and healthcare they need.

Through PROJECT C.U.R.E.'s partnership with the Agatha Foundation Medical Center, approximately $1 million worth of medical supplies and equipment will be placed into the hands of doctors in Uganda, enhancing their ability to provide improved diagnostics, treatment and care for thousands of people. The first container, filled with nearly $380,000 worth of medical relief will be sent to equip Jinja medical center, where over 70% of the services are provided to children turning their dreams for help into a reality.
