In 2003, CURE Uganda implemented a plan to extend our reach for our follow-up patients by starting mobile clinics in various regions of Uganda. Rotating clinics were opened in the western, central, and northern regions.

“As long as I have electricity and a way to heat water, that’s all I need,” Amos noted as he prepared the casting plaster. While these aren’t ideal conditions to work under, we recognize that our patients are the ones suffering, and we have been called to serve.

For CURE Kenya, our mobile clinics are just as much a part of our hospital as the physical walls that hold up our ward. As a way to welcome new patients, spread the word about what we do, and help alleviate travel for families, we go out and meet patients in or near their hometowns. We have a clinic almost every week and many of them take up the entirety of the week.

Mead Minutes: Mobile clinic and the unexpected

Going out into the home areas allows people to come and be seen more easily. CURE’s experience has been that mobile clinics serve as a source of many patients.

The families see and experience the love and care of Jesus through the CURE team, and hope slowly arises.

ENT Outreach in Zambia

Since 2010, CURE Zambia has been in the possession of a mobile ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) clinic truck, gifted to us by Gorta and Irish Aid, and has conducted screenings all around Zambia. Minor procedures and extractions can be done on site, while more serious issues are referred to our permanent hospital in Lusaka. For all the children, the visit is an event and for the ones with hearing issues, it is life-changing!

  Hello from Kenya! The week is done; what a week it has been. I feel that I have been signed up for one of those tourist trips of “seven locations in just seven days.” See it all. Now it is time for a quick breather and packing for the next adventure—CURE Ethiopia. Monday, after […]

This past Thursday after work was done here at the hospital, I headed out with Dr. Ted Beemer and his wife Susan (a nurse anesthetist) for a mobile clinic on the very east coast of the country. Of all of our mobile clinic sites, this one is definitely my favorite! First we had to drive […]
