For ten years Maranatha Health has been spreading good medicine and good health practices - and building health and hope - in communities across Uganda. Our high quality paediatric clinic and collaborative community programs have helped thousands of people live healthier, happier lives. With your donation today we can continue to empower communities to imagine and create new, healthier futures, and bring health and hope across the region.
For just $40 you can sponsor one Village Health Advisor to bring change to their community.
Birungi Rose is thrilled to be one of 18 Village Health Advisor's in her community:
Like many other households in our community I had little awareness on health and disease prevention. With teachings and mentoring from Maranatha Health I have been able to make big health changes in my home. I constructed a latrine, a rack for drying utensils, and the house for goats and chickens - something many did not believe that a woman can do.
Generally, with my children we live in a clean environment and as a result we no longer fall sick the way we used to be, we have reduced on costs from visiting drug shops and I have saved some money to stock my grocery stall at the trading centre.
As a trained Health Advisor I have 18 households I teach and monitor about health improvement and disease prevention in my community. These households have been able to do everything I teach them, they believe in me because before I teach them I first do it in my home. I feel happy when I see the changes that happen in my community because of my teaching and supervision. I work closely with my fellow community workers: we believe our community will be free from diseases and we shall develop.
Just one donation of $40 today can empower someone like Rose to bring positive health and hope to their family and their community - creating change for a lifetime.
And every $4000 raised can fund a village transformation project for six months.
All donations are tax deductible and will be issued with a receipt.
Please also consider donating regularly by becoming a MaranathaPARTNER. Regular donations are significant in helping us to achieve long-term sustainability for our vital work.
Thank you for your support - it is only with your help that we can serve those in the greatest need in Uganda.
