I visited Uganda last year and the most rewarding aspect was seeing the dedication and compassion Ugandan workers show, both those working in hospitals,and those working in orphanages for disabled infants who have been abandoned. Their positivity, attitude and gratitude toward life is admirable.
The most challenging aspect was having to accept the limited impact we could make during our medical elective, as we were at an early stage in med school and had little knowledge of communicable diseases. That was part of my inspiration to make a sustainable contribution to the Ugandan people. I have recruited a team, each with different educational back rounds to bring as much skill to this business venture as possible.
