Today we welcomed the rest of our team, giving us a total of 39. We spent the majority of the day preparing our supplies for the first day of clinic. We then walked as a group to the Masindi-Katara Medical Center (MKMC).
During our walk we were able to get a glance of the community and interact with a few locals. We were greeted by many smiling children full of laughter upon our arrival to MKMC. The local staff members of the medical center educated our group on healthcare in Uganda and took us on a tour of the facility. We were able to see the general inpatient ward, maternity ward, labor suite, operating room (also called the operating theatre),outpatient services, imaging center and laboratory. We enjoyed meeting the providers and their staff.
We ended the day with dinner and fellowship, learning life stories from several team members. Please continue to pray for our team and our first day at clinic. We expect to see around 200 patients. We are excited to see how God works through us serving this community.
