Bob Pellissier launches Clinic at Mughete Junior Nursery and Primary School

Posted: Thu, March 03, 2016 | By: Past Projects



​The Ruwenzori region has a new medical clinic!

In the town of Kyarumba, philanthropist Bob Pellissier has established a “Pellissier Student Health Centre” to take care of the children attending Mughete Junior Nursery and Primary School.

The clinic is one of nine that Bob Pellissier is currently supporting. The other clinics are at Kasese Humanist Primary School, Nyakiyumbu Widows Orphanage School, Rays of Light Orphanage School, Vision Care School, Mother Givers Nursery School, St. Luke’s Nursery School, Kabingo Primary School, and St. Michael’s Primary School.

Te clinics are established to care for the children attending each school. Diseases that afflict these children are malaria, diarrhea, peptic ulcer disease (caused by malnutrition), parasitic worm infections, respiratory tract infections, and gastro-intestinal tract infections.
