Even before we began our work at the Kabale Regional Referral Hospital, Director Dr. Sophie Namasopo wondered aloud if we might be able to start further upstream, in the community, hopefully preventing a trip to the hospital in the first place. Could we find a way to share our lifesaving healthcare training in the village on a wider scale and thus avoid illness up front? In addition, the Ministry of Health has developed 22 Key Family Care Practices aimed at prevention of disease and illness, but has struggled to get them to the mostly rural population of Uganda. According to the MOH, good healthy lifestyles start at home and home is where the treatment of sick children begins. People in the community need to know these basic family care practices!
Enter the Good Gaali Riders… Just as Jesus sent out the seventy in pairs to preach, teach, and heal, our focus for 2022 is to reach out to the community with life-saving information by sending out teams of riders two by two to share desperately needed medical care training and the good news of Jesus Christ. Life-saving news in terms of preventative health care and life-saving in terms of eternity! The Good Gaali bikes are uniquely suited to go to remote villages and reach out to those who have been historically neglected by the Ugandan healthcare system. Our teams of two, each one including a fully qualified nurse, will follow up on patients discharged from KRRH and work with local officials to create small community health groups that meet regularly to learn about critical health practices. In addition, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we will continue to share the gospel and help disciple new believers who in turn create new disciples.
