Volunteer in Uganda

Volunteer in Uganda

Dear Members,

Have you always wanted to go abroad with your friends and are you interested in putting your studies into practice? Then the Health project might be something for you! The Health project is based on Sustainable Development Goal 3.4: By 2030, reduce by one-third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being.

Volunteers will be involved in community outreach and will support families with kids who suffer from sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease (SCD), or sickle cell anaemia, is a major genetic disease that affects most countries in the African Region. In sickle cell disease, the normal round shape of red blood cells become like crescent moons. Round red blood cells can move easily through the blood vessels but sickled shaped cells interconnect and can result in blood clots.Children with sickle cell disease experience episodes of severe pain and ongoing medical challenges. Participants of the Health Project will educate the children and help them with their medication. They will also create awareness about the disease in the community. The organization you will be working with is called OSCEWI. Don’t miss this unique chance, sign up now and spend your summer in Uganda exploring global healthcare with your friends!
