We are so grateful to Jamie’s Fund for the funding for the Community Mental Health programme here at Kagando.
The programme is going well; we were seeing another new patient in the community just six days ago who has steel shackles on both legs, and spends his days lying in the dark. He will be seen again tomorrow, but is already responding to the injection that we gave him last week – just one more of what we know are many others suffering from severe mental illness in the community.
He is more accessible than the patient whom we tried to meet when you were with us! (some patients are not accessible by road)

Deputy medical director at Kagando hospital
