Medical Care

Lubega Fred PL03marIn December 2002, Fred Lubega stepped on a splinter, and his foot became infected. He went first to the local clinic, but it was closed for the holidays. Therefore, he received treatment from the local traditional healer, the “witch doctor”.  He developed blood poisoning and the day after Christmas went home to be with the Lord. In memory of Fred, ACM opened the Lubega Medical Clinic, which provides medical care 24/7, 365 days of the year, not only to our children, but to a surrounding community of over 3,000 people.

New Baby in the Clinic

The nursing staff provides excellent first line medical and dental care. They can perform functions only a physician’s assistant can perform in our country. The clinic offers dental care including extractions and restorative care, for our sponsored children and for the community. Babies are even born there… our Head Nurse is a midwife.
