Medical and Dental Mission Trip to Uganda (July 2024, Team 2)


Lugazi, Uganda

July 20, 2024 - July 27, 2024 (7 days)

Opportunity provided by

Global First Responder (GFR )

Acts as a centralized network for individuals and agencies involved in relief work worldwide and organizes and executes mission trips to areas in need, focusing not only on healthcare delivery but also on health education and improvements.


About the trip: GFR has been invited to provide primary health care by an established NGO focusing on education and health improvement in rural areas in the Lugazi region on the northern shore of Lake Victoria.  Our team will provide medical and dental care and our partner organization will provide health education to villagers of all ages.  On our first day of clinic we will tour a school and have the opportunity to provide screening physicals for the school children.  We will also receive an interactive talk on the culture and history of Uganda from our local NGO director.  The last 4 clinic days will be in surrounding rural communities and we will provide care for approximately 150-200 patients per day.  We will see everyone from pregnant women and tiny babies to the very oldest community members.  Many of our patients normally travel all day by foot or bicycle to obtain healthcare, and frequently can’t obtain it due to the long distances.

Our team will have a total of 14 volunteers (mostly physicians, dentists, PA /NPs, dental technicians, EMTs and a few non-medical staff) due to the limitations of the compound where we are staying.  Apply early as this trip will fill quickly!

Arrivals and Departures for the Medical/Dental Team: Please arrive in Entebbe, Uganda (airport code EBB) prior to the start date of the trip (July 21, 2024).  Your team will hold 5 days of medical clinics with a rest/sightseeing day during the week.  Your return transportation to Entebbe is included in your trip fee.  Your trip ends in Entebbe on July 28, 2024.  Please see the “after the trip” section for more information on staying longer in the “Pearl of Africa”.

Cost: The cost of this trip is approximately $850.00 per person plus airfare. You are responsible for purchasing airfare that meets the required arrival and departure times.  We always suggest giving yourself extra time for delayed or canceled flights and that you purchase trip insurance from a reputable carrier.  This trip is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  You or your donors will receive a tax receipt upon making your donation.

What’s Included: This trip includes lodging, transportation, translators, water, and all meals within the official dates of the trip.  Transportation from Entebbe to Lugazi and from Lugazi to Entebbe is included.  Most clinic supplies and any special projects are covered by GFR but in 2024, we are adding a $200 per person fee to cover the increased cost of medications and supplies.
