Yonder Health

The community is faced by many health challenges and are constantly ailed with diseases like malaria, cholera, dysentery, typhoid among others. The failed drainage systems are the major cause of the water related diseases. We gather the members in the affected communities and educate them on proper drainage practices so that they get rid of stagnant water and clean up the trenches so that the disease occurrences are reduced.

We engage the community through health outreaches. We collaborate with government-set up health centres and give them basic medication to treat common illnesses like typhoid, malaria and dysentery. We periodically organise health camps and invite specialists from the USA who volunteer of their time to do consultations and treatment of the community people. Sometimes they are specialised camps to handle paediatric cases or eye issues among others.

Our Story

The Jigger “Curse” Broken

Grace, Annette and their youngest sister Abwooli come from a family of four. For the longest time, their bodies were inflicted with jiggers from their feet up to nearly their lips. They lived in a grass thatched house with their mentally ill parents. Because their family had suffered from the jigger problem generation after generation, they were known in the entire community as a cursed family. Three years ago, we got to learn of their predicament and started to work with them We supported them in all aspects; from taking the children to school to extending health and social support to them and were also able to build them a new house and latrine. Being jigger free and attending school is one of our achievements we are delighted to mention as we continue working with them.
