Medical Care Newsletter 2023 Child Health Day Uganda

Holt Uganda’s Child Health Days have an incredible impact, providing vitamins, deworming treatment and more to over 165,000 children since they began.

In rural, impoverished communities in Uganda, too many children don’t get the medical care they need. They don’t go to the doctor when they get an infection, they miss out on routine childhood vaccinations, and many are terribly malnourished due to intestinal parasites. 

But thanks to Holt donors, this is changing. 

Holt Uganda now partners with the Ugandan government each year to hold four Child Health Days! And at these events, Holt donors help provide the vitamins, deworming medication and more to help children heal!

Child Health Days also include education about healthy foods!

In just five years, it’s become one of Holt’s farthest-reaching, most impactful programs — improving the health of over 165,900 children! 

Each health day provides routine catch-up immunizations, vitamin A supplements, deworming medication, malnutrition screening, general health check-ups, prenatal vitamins for mothers, treatments of common illnesses, and health and nutrition education. 

“In just five years, it’s become one of Holt’s farthest-reaching, most impactful programs — improving the health of over 165,900 children!” 

Already, the effect on individual children, their parents and the community is obvious. The number of malnourished children in these target communities has greatly reduced. So many more mothers are receiving pre- and post-natal care, and more. 

Holt Uganda hopes to serve even more this year — bringing better health and changing the lives of children in need.
