We were very blessed to receive doctors and volunteers from the ihelp organization. They have a friend who has a clinic in Uganda and so they had planned a 2 week visit to Uganda. They visited Mpendo Packer Medical Center and provided free medical care for 2 days. We were blessed to reached out to over 1500 patients. We had our local doctors, nurses and other staff interact and met, they both worked together and we registered high success and turn up at the clinic. We have since been a little more busy as most of our clients had to return for review.

We convey our sincere greetings and hope all is well on your side. I would like to give you a brief update on what has been happening considering that fact that you are a very busy person.
