Halo everyone I am ELLY a physician assistant (clinical officer) by profession, 25 years old from Masaka ,Uganda working with a local health sciences research organization in Uganda and also operating medical clinic in our country capital Kampala .
Back in 2013 me and my fellow team we engaged in Virtuous Samaritan deeds which are still ongoing centered at our medical clinic which serves the local community at a free cost and some services at a very slight fee. We are; offering amenities like immunization, Planned Parenthood, medical services, simple surgical services, laboratory services among others.
At this moment this medical clinic acts as a heart for our non-medical work; ie averting diseases, conducting healthiness camps in the countryside, promoting socio-economic development and status of vulnerable and disadvantaged women, youths and men in the community, setting and adopting behavioral change communication strategy and Primary Health Care (PHC) services.
We work with diverse sects of people, secular and some religious. Our focus is simply to help people wherever they are. We make no distinctions based on race, religion, social strata or tribe. Among what we do includes the following ;
Research in health sciences fields.
Primary health care and Community health work which includes health camps, mentoring, and home visiting.

Kampala is a city in Uganda 32 kilometers from the Entebbe international airport. It is a splendid metropolitan on the shores of lake victoria; gifted with fabulous restaurants, good shopping malls, good transport means, amazing hotels . Kampala is an exquisite secure urban, with diverse cultures and lots of sweet hobbies to do in your free time with a great night life.
Masaka my home town, is a municipality relatively smaller than Kampala and it is 125km west of kampala, with the very infrastructure found in Kampala.

Nos países em desenvolvimento (Onde grande parte dos anfitriões está envolvido em trabalho beneficente ou no desenvolvimento de comunidade) alguns de nossos anfitriões podem solicitar uma pequena contribuição para ajudar a família anfitriã ou as obras de caridade (frequentemente menos de 5 dólares por dia) Workaway permitirá estas listas quando a doação for direto para a família ou obras de caridade e, somente com o intuito de cobrir os gastos com a hospedagem dos voluntários. (Isto estará claramente sinalizado nas listas dos anfitriões).
Em hipótese alguma aceitamos listas postadas por agentes, “intermediários” ou projetos que acreditamos que buscam se beneficiar do trabalho voluntário.
