Celebrating the Opening of KFWH Pediatric Clinic #4 in Lwala,Uganda
It’s open! The new mattresses and beds are in place and the mosquito nets are hung! Our shipment has arrived, and our clinic is open! The staff at Lwala Hospital are ready to receive children from the villages of Lwala, and the 150,000 villagers in the surrounding areas where people suffer from malaria and sleeping sickness (trypanosomiasis).
The clinic built by funds raised by students in KFWH is in tribute to
Dr. Jean Jannin, Coordinator/Director of Neglected Tropical Diseases at the World Health Organization.
Dr. Jean Jannin is our founding mentor and currently serves on our Advisory Board and KFWH Advisory Team. He and his department have been highly responsible for the possible elimination of sleeping sickness in many highly effected areas of Africa.
