Nutrition Rehabilitation. Severely malnourished children are admitted at the hospital for nutrition rehabilitation and treatment. These go back healthy and happy. The care takers are also taught how to feed the children on a balanced diet using locally available foods. This has brought incredible results in the lives of hundreds of children. Every single dollar given towards this work saves lives.
Supporting children beyond nutrition:
These children go back home happy and are even enrolled in school. If you wish to support a needy child beyond nutrition rehabilitation, you can contact the projects office through the Complex Director.
Construction project. Kitovu Hospital is currently fundraising for the construction of a new multipurpose building to replace the Out Patient Department (OPD). The current OPD, which was constructed in 1955 by the Medical Missionaries of Mary, can not accommodate today’s growing patient population. This project will bring a number of services under one roof. It will include the medical ward, laboratory, data room, doctors’ offices and a conference room. The project will be constructed in phases. Water which will be harvested from this building will reduce the cost of water by approximately 40%. Below is the Architectural plan for the New OPD.
Radiology Department. This is one of the center pillar departments in the hospital. The current x-ray has served for 15 years and it is beyond its usage lifespan. It almost triples the dose of radiation during operation. There is a great need to buy a new one. This will have a huge impact to patients and the staff.
Thank you for your concern towards the people of Uganda
