A Motorbike Ambulance to improve transport for patients

3 Sep

From early 2015, a motorbike ambulance has been based at Kimtab Clinic to provide much better transport of patients to Kimtab Clinic from remote parts of the community, or to hospitals in Mbale or elsewhere. KRDP have set out to cover the operating costs of the ambulance and provide it as a free service to the community. We are grateful to the Burdett Trust for Nursing for providing funding for the next three years to enable us to make a solid start on this important initiative.IMG_1330-1

Expanding the Safe Motherhood Programme

3 Sep

Burdett LogoThe Safe Motherhood Programme brings healthcare to mothers and babies, plus many other members of the community, in remote areas from which they would not be able to easily get to the Kimtab Clinic. It has become firmly established during the last two years thanks to support we have received from the Burdett Trust for Nursing. Based on the demand that is clearly there for this service, KRDP has been exploring the possibility of expanding the programme so that there are 8 local clinics per month, rather than the present 4. We are grateful that the Burdett Trust for Nursing has generously provided  funding that will allow this to happen.
