The first rains of the season came to Uganda at the end of January, which resulted in the farming communities preparing their farms and gardens around the country. With families busy preparing the land for planting, they had no time to take the sick to hospital. In early February, the number of patients in the hospital slowly decreased with only two or three new admissions a day. This resulted in the ward being two-fifths full with 18 patients in the hospital. This is a look at life at CURE Uganda from that time.
