It has been harder than usual to source a motorbike in Uganda for the clinic even once funds had been raised due to the COVID lockdown, so we were really pleased to hear last night from Jojo Seme that it has arrived. He said:
“Greetings to CRESS UK from Clinic staff in Mijale, Uganda. I love to inform you that the long-awaited clinic motorcycle has finally arrived today at 6pm. By God’s grace, we have been blessed again with a new motorbike, this pandemic has greatly contributed to the delay in the procurement processes.
The motorcycle will be of help in the following ways;
1. To facilitate medical outreach to the refugee population
2. As transport to follow up patients, referral of patients, provide first aid at an emergency scene and submit monthly reports to the district health office (49 km away from the clinic)
3.To facilitate CATT (Children’s Accelerated Trauma Therapy) bi-monthly visits to CRESS CATT Counsellors in the refugee camps.”
We are so looking forward to seeing the motorbike in action over the coming months!
