Nawanyago was started and is managed by Catholic nuns called Banakalori Sisters Bwanda who work to improve the health of the poor people in the community. Since the health center is located in Kamuli District Eastern Uganda, an area with an elevated number of peasants and high rates of poverty, poor health, and joblessness, the nuns aim to provide good health care in good facilities at the lowest cost possible because we realized such service was lucking in the area.
Activities of the project include:
Immunization at the centre
Test and counseling on HIV/AIDS
Mental health clinic
We work hand in hand with the volunteer so there are no specific roles, the volunteer does everything as assigned by the supervisor. There may be night shifts depending on the time table.
Volunteer requirements / Skills
The volunteer should have a medical background or some medical knowledge or aspire to be a doctor or a nurse. Long term volunteers are best for our project, we prefer volunteers who stay longer because it takes us two months to train our volunteer.
The volunteer must be at least 18 years old.
The health centre is located in Kamuli district in eastern Uganda.
Hosting Situation (Board and Lodging)
The volunteer stays at the project with other staff members. Everything is shared but the volunteer might have an own bedroom.
