“A moment like this is a reminder of how we all need to band together to overcome the challenges and complexities as everything in the world is interconnected.”
I Recently returned from Uganda, as a matter of caution in relation to CVID-19 pandemic, so that I can be with my family but also to ensure I have adequate access to Health resources if need be, I am now well rested. Having traveled through New York. I was tested for COVID-19 and results came back negative, thank God for this good news. We are praying that this pandemic will diminish so that I can return back to Uganda to help complete this remarkable Global Healthcare initiative for the people of Bukwo and many others around the region.
A moment like this is a reminder of how we all need to band together to overcome the challenges and complexities as everything in the world is interconnected. Bukwo and its neighboring communities both in Kenya and Uganda are in a dangerous situation should this pandemic infiltrate the community. It will be such a great challenge to control the situation and particularly how to care for those affected given the limited access to healthcare. Indeed, God forbid if the pandemic were to strike Bukwo!! We would lose many lives not only because of lack of ventilators in the whole region of about 200,000 people, but many lack access to basic health services. We know that impoverished communities with weaker health systems will be negatively affected the hardest.
My wife and I are trying to change this dynamic; thus we have committed our financial resources to help build a hospital in the community. Our community is begging us to open the doors quickly. They are shaken and scared for the unknown especially with the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please continue to pray for and with us that we meet all the benchmarks needed to open the LOVE4BUKWO Hospital in 2020.
