UBC Holds Health Training Workshop

UBC Holds Health Training Workshop

The Uganda Buddhist Centre in partnership with Moringa for Love, and Seeds Healthcare Partners, organized a 2-day health training workshop from November 30th to December 1st, 2023, at the Uganda Buddhist Centre. The focus of this workshop was on pain relief treatment and physiotherapy, aiming to empower medical professionals and uplift the well-being of the community.

The first component of the workshop enhanced the skills of medical doctors, particularly in the domain of pain relief treatment. Dr. T.C, the founder of Seed Healthcare Partners in USA conducted comprehensive training sessions on administering injections for various joint pains, including knee and shoulder pain. Additionally, medical professionals were equipped with physiotherapy techniques to aid patients in relieving pain effectively.

The second component focused on direct patient care, with more than 80 individuals aged 50 and above receiving personalized treatment, either through injections or physiotherapy. This hands-on approach ensured that the knowledge gained in the training sessions was immediately applied for the benefit of the community.

Moreover, the workshop extended its impact beyond the immediate participants by engaging 20 village health teams (VHTs) in a dedicated health education session. These VHTs, as the frontline healthcare providers in their respective villages, acquired valuable knowledge during the workshop. They are now tasked with disseminating this information, amplifying the workshop’s impact across various communities.

Recognizing the diverse needs of the community, the workshop went a step further to address the vision concerns of patients aged 50 and above, as well as those requiring assistance in their reading. By providing reading glasses, the organizers aimed to empower individuals with improved vision, enabling them to engage more fully in daily activities and promoting a sense of inclusivity within the community.

Furthermore, Dr. Patrick, the founder of Moringa for Love, provided a specialized training on the health benefits of moringa. Emphasizing its rich nutritional profile, including vitamins C and B, calcium, iron, among others, Dr. Patrick highlighted how incorporating moringa into daily diets can significantly boost our immune system. As a gesture of sustainable health promotion, each health team received a moringa tree seedling to plant at their homes.

Overall, this collaborative workshop stands as a symbol of holistic healthcare, addressing not only immediate medical needs but also emphasizing preventive measures and community engagement. By empowering medical professionals, treating patients directly, and educating village health teams, the workshop has sown the seeds of enduring health and well-being in the local community.
