Healthcare Access

“Briget is a 9 year old girl who lives with her mother, a single parent after the divorce with the father.  Briget developed a small wound in her right arm which was taken lightly by her mother.  She suffered with much pain for two years without proper medical help. When she came to the Tororo main hospital the doctor discovered she was suffering from chronic oestomolitis. 

One of the best experiences of our trips to Uganda is being able to meet those whose lives have been saved due to BBi donor generosity.  This time we met with six individuals who were brought to the Tororo Hospital with injuries or ailments but were not able to pay for treatment.
