Acknowledgements

There are many people who help make the Northern Uganda Villages Health Outreach Project possible from the international student teams and our partner organisations to university staff and you, our friends and family who sponsor the projects.

 

Student Teams…

The Gulu University Medical Students’ Association help make the outreaches possible, in particular their task forces and the students who participate the outreaches. Find out more about GUMSA by clicking on their logos below.

Partner Organisations…

We would like to say thank you to the following organisations in Gulu who worked tirelessly on the outreaches:

We would also like to thank Communication for Healthy Communities (CHC) for their Obulamu resources and advice on communicating with and delivering health education people in the community.

 

Support at home…

The money raised allowed students from all backgrounds to attend the trip, no matter their financial situation. It meant we were able to stay with incredibly warm and welcoming host families and most importantly we were able to fund health outreaches to several locations in Northern Uganda, seeing several thousand patients over the visits. We also took the time whilst we were in Gulu to connect with local organisations and NGOs to gain a better understanding of the history and culture in Northern Uganda. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who helped to support the trip through attending our fundraising events, buying cakes at our bake sales, the organisations who supplied us with grants and everyone who sponsored us through our various crowdfunding pages.

 

2017

Our Hubbub page helped us to raise over £20,000 with a special thanks to the Learning Enrichment Fund who match funded us £500.  We would like to say a particularly special thank you to four of our supporters who pledged a generous amount of over £100 each. As promised, we would like to mention Alan Ogilvie, Bea & Pete Rushforth and Beechfield Brands.

As promised, we would like to mention Zac Williams, Alison Thomson, Bea & Pete Rushforth and Mark Healey.
