Health Care Program.
In Uganda one of the most expensive service to get his medication. Since most of the less privileged Children under our support are living in poverty, they are vulnerable to disease and sickness. Less privileged children are always exposed to a pandemic, and health screenings, dental care and routine childhood vaccination are always impossible.
Youth With A Vision introduced a Health Care program to protect children against diseases and pandemics by creating awareness and sensitization.
Through our Health care program, we ask you for medical assistance that will allow a child in poverty access to medical care. Your donation towards this program can literally save a child’s life.
Your support will help us to provide
Surgeries, transplants, casts, wheelchairs and canes, cancer treatment, hearing and eye care, and dental needs.
Counselling for children who’ve been exposed to psychological torture, and domestic violence and who are addicted to drugs is disturbed.
Training medical workers
With this support, we hope to support less privileged children who are passionate about becoming medical personnel to fill the vacuum of limited health workers in our community.
According to the World Health Organization Survey report, the doctor to a Patient ratio in Uganda is estimated to be 1:25,725 and the nurse-to-patient ratio is estimated to be 1:110,000 this is among the reasons why the health services are expensive. If we can health to reduce this gap, we are contributing to the improvement of health services in Uganda.
