Heartfelt thanks from Kisoro

At the end of last year, a container humedica had loaded with relief goods reached the St. Francis Hospital in Mutolere (Uganda). humedica has been supporting the east African hospital for already several years.

The receiver of the urgently needed goods is a non-commercial institution that disposes of 210 beds and offers medical treatment in the fields of surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology.

The St Francis Hospital Mutolere is located close to the Ugandan city of Kisoro and only twelve kilometres from the borders to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Thanks to this location close to the border, many patients and also often refugees from the neighbouring countries Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo can be treated at the hospital. Hence, the St Francis Hospital Mutolere serves as a centre for medical treatment to a large number of patients who come from far beyond the district's borders.

The relief shipments organised by humedica contribute to improving the quality of medical treatment for an even larger number of patients both on a short and on a long term.

In Kisoro, joy about the arrival of the container with its thoroughly chosen freight was immense. In particular regarding the diverse selection of medical relief goods and other important goods that were specifically chosen to meet the hospital's basic needs.

These goods included among others dressing materials, bed linen, wheelchairs, surgeons' clothes and surgical instruments, orthopaedic equipment and further utensils and instruments for daily medical use at the hospital.

"We can assure you that this container means an immense support both for our hospital and for the people of Kisoro who come here to be treated", wrote the administrator in charge, Mayunga Pontius.

"We would like to thank you for this support with all our hearts." And at this point, we would like to pass on these words of gratitude also to you, dear friends and sponsors!
