Vehicle for Nyamirama Parish, Uganda:
Coordinator: Fr. Aloysius Ndema, CSSp
Donor: St. Basil Coffee Initiative
People move long distances on foot to come to the Parish to access various services because the pastor had no way to reach them in all situations. By the time they reach the parish health facilities, they are in bad state resulting in medical complications and even death. The need was for a vehicle that could be used by the pastor to reach parishioners as well as to transport the ill to the clinic.
People of all kinds benefit from this vehicle for all service delivery be it for spiritual, medical, social, and psychological needs. An average of five patients are brought daily to the parish health unit. This includes the elderly, who cannot walk, and the poor who cannot afford the transport. The parish health unit covers the whole sub – county of the population of about 90,000 and the neighboring district and sub – counties.
