ROTARY CLUB OF LANCASTER PROJECT TO FUND TWO UGANDAN STUDENTS TO STUDY MEDICINE IN UGANDA

ROTARY CLUB OF LANCASTER PROJECT TO FUND TWO UGANDAN STUDENTS TO STUDY MEDICINE IN UGANDA

There is a great shortage of qualified doctors in Uganda and even greater shortage of those prepared to work in country areas. In Kamuli District (Pop 590,000) there are 6.

Salaama and Richard were students at St John Bosco Secondary School, Kamuli, where Gill Jenkinson – a Rotary Foundation volunteer – worked between 2001 and 2010, while Rtn Tim worked for Rotary Doctorbank at the nearby hospital. A respected doctor in Kamuli has requested that we try to get scholarships for the students to qualify as doctors so that they could be of significant service to the community. Both have held a dream to work “up country” and would guarantee to do this. There is no government funding available to them.

We have cooperation from the Rotary Club of Kyambogo Kampala, the Medical Superintendent of Kamuli General Hospital, and some offers of private sponsorship.

This project addresses at least 2 of the areas of focus and is sustainable and of benefit to the community.

We were successful in gaining a District grant this year for the first student who has been doing well at Busitema University. This year we hope the second student will be able to start the course and we are very hopeful of getting a District grant for the two students.

We wonder if your club would be prepared to give some financial support to this project this year. It is, of course, a five year project and we shall have to apply for a District grant each year. RC Lancaster is committed to the project but we need other support to keep the project viable. Any amount towards the cost would be gratefully received to supply much needed medical care in a poor rural area.
