KIU, Main Campus - Kampala International University's final year medical student Michael Jemba Senkolle has embarked on the journey to survey the remote areas of Jinja where he hopes to organize medical camps.
Together with Ms. Diana Alison Munage, the Senior Community Development Officer Jinja district, they have carried out a survey on a number of places while identifying the burdens in those areas.
They visited among others, health facilities like Musima Health Centre II and Nalinaibi Health Centre in Nalinaibi village.
Jemba says that the key conditions which affect the people of Musima range from Malaria, STIs, dermatological infections, non-communicable diseases, and poverty.
During their trip, they identified the struggles that the facility is having some of which were a very low supply of drugs despite the facility seeing at least 750 OPD patients monthly and no staff quarters which greatly limits the night services of the facility.
He adds that facilities also struggle with some of the basic instruments not being functional which makes service delivery even hard.
Jemba continues to call for support from well-wishers to help the people of Nalinaibi and Musima in order to better their lives.
