In addition the following day the link for the BBC documentary about the Kisiizi micro-electricity project was released.
The videos include the Nutrition project, Rehabilitation, Flood defences, Power Company, School, Hope Community clinic, and greetings from Kisiizi Staff.
Thanks to all who took part and for all the encouragement.

Kisiizi is excited with new links to WRBLO (“We rise by lifting others”) a UK Community Interest Company. A range of projects have been drawn up to help Kisiizi achieve its strategic plan objectives aiming to be a centre of excellence without excluding the poor and vulnerable. The new projects include dental & medical equipment, vehicles, buildings etc. http://www.wrblo.org
Kisiizi is extremely grateful for the tremendous support from Kisiizi Partners and other groups and hopes this new link will be complimentary, bringing in additional help from new individuals and groups as together we seek to provide Life in all its Fullness.
NEW PUBLICATION ON KISIIZI COMMUNITY HEALTH INSURANCE SCHEME January 2021
This important research shows that membership of our Scheme leads to a 26% increase in use of mosquito nets and 18% increase in deworming compared to control families in our communities. There is little research published on the effect of voluntary health insurance on preventive health so this paper is really interesting adding yet more benefits to the value of our Scheme. These include the obvious financial protection against catastrophic health expenditure in the event of acute illness, plus our previously published work on a significant reduction in childhood stunting. In addition Kisiizi has analysed data from the Stre@mline IT system it has developed to show a 50% fall in admission rates from our clinics for those who belong to the Scheme. We currently have around 42,000 beneficiaries in 6 districts in over 220 groups in this not-for-profit scheme reaching up to 60km from Kisiizi.

Here is a new publication about the functioning of our community health insurance scheme…
Kisiizi continues to have an amazing impact all over the world. A tourism student at the Pantheon Sorbonne of University of Paris chose Kisiizi Falls as a project due to its links with the United Nations World Tourism Organization ST-EP Project (sustainable tourism, eliminating poverty).

One of the themes of Kisiizi is Care for the Vulnerable… this little girl came to Kisiizi with severe malnutrition causing swelling of her body as seen in the two photos on the left. After a couple of weeks she was transformed…
We have many departments and do a lot of surgical procedures for which patients will travel long distances. The service is 24 hours and the photo shows a team helping a young child who has inhaled a seed or bean and has severe respiratory distress:
