The Real Medicine Foundation Uganda team just received a large donation of medicine from Direct Relief. As the Healthcare Implementing Partner for UNHCR at Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, this donation will support our initiative tremendously. Thank you, Direct Relief!
Direct Relief posted an article on their website highlighting the donation. The article as a whole is available by clicking the article images below. Read a small excerpt here.
“Last Thursday, a shipment of essential medicines and supplies arrived at the Bidi Bidi Refugee Settlement in northern Uganda, where more than 285,000 people are living after fleeing from neighboring countries like South Sudan. The medicines were delivered to Bidi Bidi with the help of humanitarian aviation company, Air Serv.
The shipment included an Emergency Health Kit and additional medicine and supplies to bolster the efforts of Real Medicine Foundation in providing primary healthcare to the hundreds of thousands of refugees in the Kiryandongo and Bidi Bidi refugee settlements. Real Medicine Foundation has been tasked as UNHCR and the Office of the Prime Minister’s Health Implementing Partner in Kiryandongo and Bidi Bidi, overseeing 40 health clinics and supporting an additional four district and regional hospitals."
RMF’s goal is to provide comprehensive primary healthcare services to the population of Bidibidi Refugee Settlement by establishing and maintaining easily accessible, fully stocked, fully staffed health clinics and creating a robust health outreach program. RMF also strives to promote the peaceful coexistence of refugee and host populations by supporting referral points in the host community, such as Yumbe District Hospital, and making our services available to all who attend our clinics or health outreaches.
