This morning we had the privilege of visiting one of Brian’s (Ammabel’s husband) free dental clinics. Brian is a dentist with his own clinic, RUN Dental which supports his wife and four sons. He also volunteers his time to give free mobile clinics to patients who cannot afford dental care. The clinic we visited was in association with Alive Medical Services which holistically treats 12,000 HIV adults and children. This clinic was specifically for HIV children. Brian gave lessons on dental health and brushing, provided each child with a free toothbrush and gave individual consultation and treatment to each child. This was an incredible service and we were inspired by the beautiful work Brian does for the Kingdom.
Brian has been a huge help to the 32 women who are part of Empowering Nations as he has helped each of them with teeth replacement and preventative care. Malnutrition from mouth sores is one of the leading causes of death among HIV patients which is why Brian’s work is so impactful to the EN women and the surrounding community. His goal is to open a community dental clinic on his property to bless the needy in his community.
After the clinic we walked around the market place to look for business inspiration and make some random Ugandan purchases. We ate some traditional food for the fourth time in a row and then headed back to our hotel for a time of prayer and preparation for the next day.
