About 400 people, including children, have benefitted from a free health and vision camp organised by Shia Ismaili Muslim Community in Uganda.
Health camp. A medical personnel from the Shia Ismaili Muslim Community in Uganda gives out medicine during a free health and vision camp at St Gracious Nursery and Primary School in Lira Town on November 30.
The camp was held at St Gracious Nursery and Primary School in Lira last Saturday.
Mr Minaz Jamal, the President of Aga Khan National Council of Uganda, said: “We regularly provide help through such camps and try to make a small difference. The idea is to conduct the camps in an environment of compassion and care. In Lira, we screened for vision and qualified doctors were able to examine the children and parents.”
Mr Jamal also said they sensitised the community members about the benefits of early childhood development, which teaching was done by the Aga Khan Foundation Madrasa Early Childhood Programme.
“We can make this difference with the generosity of our partners and our dedicated volunteers who look after health and outreach matters,” he added.
