Kolonyi hospital has served multiple districts around Mbale since the 1980/90s war. It was one of the few fully operational hospitals at that time and has a good reputation. With the help of many donators we were again able to improve the medical care in SALEM-Uganda and the close by communities.
When Betty was brought to the Children`s home in SALEM-Uganda she was 5 years old but wasn´t able to walk or talk mainly because of malnutrition and abuse by her own mother. Thanks to the loving care of the SALEM-Aunties who supported her with a special training she learned how to walk.
This short film about these community outreaches shows the importance of the medical work that is done by SALEM-Uganda. By going out into the nearby villages we can reach the rural population around SALEM-Uganda.
When the Managing Director of SALEM, Samuel Müller, visited our project in Togo last december he was given some seeds of the sabanut tree by project manager Gbati Nikabou. He then brought them as a gift to SALEM-Uganda.
Our dedicated staff in SALEM-Ecuador has created an own website just for this project so that SALEM friends and others can find out more about our valuable work in Mindo even easier and faster.
The site is available at www.salem-ecuador.org in English, German and Spanish.
