In 2012, the Greater Love Uganda Ministry held its first medical triage clinic in Jinja, Uganda. The medical staff treated close to 700 people during the course of a 2-day medical clinic. The following year we decided to take the medical clinic to a local village and increase our service project to 3-days. In 2013, we served more than 1,000 men, women and children. Each year since 2013 our ministry has held roving 3-day medical triage clinics that have served thousands of people who would not have had the funds to otherwise seek medical attention. The idea of a offering a permanent, reduced fee medical clinic was proposed in 2014 and will come to fruition in April 2018.
The construction of the small clinic began in early 2017 after the funding was raised through generous supporters of the Greater Love Uganda Ministry (aka Calvary Orphan Outreach Ministry). In April 2018 the clinic will be officially opened when our mission team is visiting and we will be holding our 7th year of medical triage clinics. We think that this 7th year of service is significant because it identified in the Bible with something being "finished" or "complete." The clinic will remain open through out the year with a local staff running the clinic and the Greater Love Uganda Ministry providing the means to purchase consumables used at the clinic.
Our ministry's mobile clinics usually consist of:
The new permanent Greater Love Medical Center will be a smaller version of one of the mobile clinics. It will have an in-take nurse, 1 doctor who will see patients out of two exam rooms, a laboratory with one technician, a pharmacy with one pharmacy technician to dispense drugs and give treatments. Eventually we hope to have a medical counselor on staff to help with HIV prevention and prevention of other health issues. Below is the blueprint for the ground level of the Greater Love Medical Clinic. There are future plans to expand upwards as the funds and needs arise.
Worship the LORD your God, and His blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you....
But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the LORD.
