Community Health

Our nurses also spend time in the villages surrounding Ekitangaala Ranch promoting community health in a number of ways.

•  Giving intestinal worm treatments at no cost to all children in the schools where ACM operates the school lunch ministry.
•  Coordinating community immunization programs with the local Ministry of Health Clinic to provide timely and free vaccinations for children in the area.
•  Presenting public health and disease prevention programs in local schools and villages.
•  Teaching health education at Activity Day assemblies.

The Lubega Medical Clinic gives life-saving care to hundreds of children and adults every year. Without proper treatment, malaria is often deadly. World-wide malaria causes a million deaths each year. In Uganda one child out of five dies before the age of five from malaria.

The nearest mission hospital to the ranch is 33 miles away. There are private clinics closer, but they are much more expensive than our clinic. We charge only a subsidized rate for medications and supplies. Consultations and treatment are free of charge.

The people in our surrounding communities travel many miles to get medical care anywhere other than at the Lubega Clinic. ACM and the many people we serve are abundantly blessed to have this facility and its staff.

We want to do even more than we can do now with current resources. It has long been our goal for the clinic to expand into a full service hospital. If you would like to help us reach that goal, your support of the Lubega Memorial Hospital project would help our community in a wonderful way!
