The VPM Medical Centre is like an oasis in the desert where little water satisfies the thirst of many in the wilderness. Our small facility of only 8 beds, handles an average of 200 inpatients and 700 outpatients every month for both curative and preventative health services.
Our nurse, Mrs. Beryl Akinyi Oloo is in the charge, assisted by clinical officer Mr. Dominic Ongweso and Mrs. Mary Olendo. They are all working under Dr. Miriam Etole, who works on part-time basis as she is an employee of the government.
We run a pharmacy, laboratory services and maternity. We are currently getting medicine subsidies from MEDS. Many of the diseases we treat are STDs, wound stitches, malaria, Tuberculosis, cholera, typhoid cases, bilharzias and skin diseases and stitching wounds. Most of our drugs are given for free because most patients cannot afford to pay. We need a goodwill support and donations to keep our health services going. We also have counseling sessions currently handled by Mrs. Mary Olendo, a professional nurse and counselor.
We keep waiving fees for poor patients not only because they cannot afford to pay but because of our status as a charitable institution that seek to present Jesus to the world that doesn’t know Him. Please pray and support our medical centre for VPM to keep our clinic up and running.
