Project Goal: Provide one container with $500,000 worth of medical supplies and equipment to Lacor Hospital and Moyo Hospital (two containers total, benefiting the 500,000 patients seen between both hospitals and surrounding clinics per year); containers will then be repurposed into a medical clinic and a bunkhouse for farm hands
Purpose/Benefit: Project C.U.R.E. is the largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world. Lacor Hospital is a private, non-profit hospital serving more than 250,000 patients annually with a vast range of diagnostic, therapeutic and preventative medical services. Children five and under comprise 32% of the patients. The hospital is also at the forefront of health training in Uganda — 350 resident students attend the hospital’s schools for training in nursing, laboratory and anesthesia practices, health education and AIDS counseling services. Lacor also serves as a university teaching site for the Government University of Gulu Faculty of Medicine.
