BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

St. Kizito Health Center is a non- Profit unit owned by the Sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya. It is a facility sitting on approximately 1.5 acres of land together with a Convent for the sisters. The health Unit was started in 2006 by Rev.Fr. Daniel Musiitwa a Diocesan priest of Kampala Archdiocese together with some German friends led by Mr. Johannes Jung. Later on in November 2013, Fr. Daniel and the German friends donated the facility to the Sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya and the Sisters right away started operating the facility. Many Thanks to Mr. Johannes Jung, all our German friends and to Fr. Daniel for this Great Spirit of charity.

 LOCATION:

St.Kizito health Unit Kijjabijjo is located in Kijabijjo along Gayaza-Kalagi High way in Gayaza- Kimmanya Parish, Kira sub- parish County, Kyadondo County -Wakiso District in Kampala Arch- Diocese.

 OBJECTIVES:

  • The Main objective for starting this health facility by the founders was to extend health services to the people in the area.

  • Secondly to provide preventive and curative services without discrimination through offering Community based education to the people living in the villages around

 DEPARTMENTS:

  • The health centre basically has in-patient and out-patient departments.

  • It offers maternity services too, but it still needs to construct a well-furnished maternity

  • It also has laboratory services

CURRENT SITUATION:

The facility is administered by Sr. M. Margret Naluwugge the Matron, assisted by Sr. M. Annunciata Nakiganda. There are other three personnel helping in the pharmacy, laboratory, mid-wifely and comprehensive nursing. The turn up of patients is good and sisters make more by forming out-reaches in the villages to treat patients who fail to come to the health centre for treatment.

There are some other sisters in the community Kijabijo convent. These are engaged in other activities like; Sr. M.Gorreti Namutebi lecturing at Kyambogo University, Sr. M. Harriet Nampijja in a sick live and Sr. M. Nambuusi on Sabbatical leave.

FUTURE PLANS:

  • We would wish to renovate the entire health facility given funds

  • Given availability of funds, we would wish to stock our pharmacy with more medicines

  • We need to carry on constructions especially for the maternity ward

  • We plan to secure more land for extension of future services like a children ward

  • We need to complete a Doctor’s room and staff quarters

  • We hope to start a livestock project given resources

  • There is need to buy a vehicle (An ambulance) to transport patients in cases of referral

 EVENTS.

The facility recently secured a water reservoir and is now in the process of plumbing

The convent was completed and plumbing in the house will kick off soon
