January 10, 2018. In a ceremony at the Arua Camp on November 21, 2017, Mr. Debele Peter, Resident District Commissioner of Arua, awarded Gerald Atwine with a Certificate of Appreciation for the contributions Bulamu Healthcare is making to the welfare of the people of Uganda. As RDC, Mr. Debele is the senior government official in the district, indicating that Bulamu’s efforts are now being recognized and appreciated by the Ugandan government. That’s understandable. Since our first camp in April 2016, Bulamu has provided free primary healthcare to 39,000 Ugandans who would probably not have otherwise seen a doctor! That has only been possible because of the generosity of our individual donors in the U.S. and the dedication of our Ugandan medical professionals and partners.
In further recognition of the vital work Bulamu Healthcare is doing, Gerald received a gift of ceremonial fabric from the Vice-Chancellor of Muni University in Arua. Media coverage is also increasing. Gerald was interviewed on a radio talk show, and two journalists who attended the camp published favorable online articles about their experiences.
