Rotary Clubs Providing free health care to thousands in Uganda

Meet Namatovu Siiko, 4 year-old Ugandan girl living in Lukwanga Parish, Wakiso Sub County. She is one of those many young girls that have walked to me and requested for their Photograph to be taken and later-on say;… let me have a look! 0It is such innocence that has made me love children more and more ever since I started photographing Development Projects in Uganda and my small experience with them has shaped a great part of me.

With these Rotary Health Projects, we partly explore the lives of children in remote corners of the country and too often we find children growing up in difficult circumstances, faced with poverty, illness and poor medical attention.

Meet Nanfuka Judith, barely 1 year old and already suffering with burns.

4 (2)Thanks to the Rotary Clubs, It is through such projects that most of the children and other residents here  get their best medical attention,which usually includes immunisation, De-worming, Malaria treatment and dental care.
