Don Vittorio has always sought "the last", those who no one helps. For this reason, he strongly wanted the construction of two health centers, one in Loputuk, 40 km from the first working hospital and the second in Tapac, a mountainous area difficult to reach, 4 hours of pick-up from First operational health facility, to provide basic medicine and vaccination programs mainly for women and children of Karamoja.
During the years, C&S has secured the construction and maintenance of properties for Loputuk and Tapac dispensaries, the availability of an off-road vehicle for home-based vaccinations, the funding of salaries for carers and nurses not covered by the local government, The Moroto hospital, the purchase and installation of a submersible pump and the water distribution system for the pediatric and operative hall, the supply of medicines, beds and other healthcare materials and the support of a second Medical specialist in the maternal-infant ward.
Help us support the Diocese of Moroto for the operation of these realities where more than 20,000 people can receive health care, check-ups, care for their children, and vaccinations: indispensable centers for the survival of the Karimojong community.
General activity: preventive medicine - preventative health services, health care services, promotion and health protection, maternal-infant health, family planning, support services (laboratory analysis), health care in schools.
