Health Workers get kitted out

Lieta’s Community Health Workers (CHW’s) have been working exceptionally hard for their villages to deliver health awareness through individual household visits every month, offering minor medical treatment and referring individuals to the Community Health Centre – Lieta Dispensary.

The Health workers have also been teaching at Health Action Days which aim to promote healthier living practices in the community.
For the CHW’s to do their work efficiently, they require a basic medical kit for their household visits so they can perform minor first aid and referrals.
The Happy Villages team and Lieta Community have been very lucky over the last month to receive support from Happy Villages donors who donated Health Kits* to the Lieta Community Health Workers The kits were handed over in a presentation for the CHW’s, Government representatives, Committee Members and the community.

The CHW’s were so happy to receive their new kits so they can help the people in their community during their household visits. Lead CHW, Eunice Okello, gave a warm vote of thanks for donating the kits.
