MEDICAL MISSIONS OPPORTUNITIES AT ABA FOUNDATION
Uganda is a country slightly smaller than the state of Oregon, USA and is home to more than 35 million people. Uganda, while having a relatively stable government and substantial natural resources, is still a country with much suffering. The 44 year average life-span is evidence of the harsh social climate, alarming levels of Unemployment and Poverty, Diseases and Wars have taken the toll of the people of Uganda.
Uganda has been through several Humanitarian Crisis including Civil Conflict, Food Crisis, Floods, Land sliding, Refugee influx, Persistent Droughts, Human Trafficking, Absolute Poverty, HIV/AIDS Pandemic etc. This has left the people in Uganda in Great Need of Resources, including Medical Resources to help with the Major effects these Crises have had on the overall Health of the Nation.

VOLUNTEERS CHANGING THEIR WORLD FOR BETTER
ABA Foundation - Volunteers are making a difference in some of the world's poorest communities, living and working alongside local people on projects of lasting value.
Volunteers join us at different stages of their lives and with different passions. Yet they all want a challenge and they are united by their determination to make a difference. Typically, they walk away with a broad set of skills that help them to make progress in their personal and professional lives and carry on making a positive contribution to the causes they really care about.
These skills include the ability to negotiate, to motivate, to listen and learn from other cultures, to plan and manage budgets and so much more. Half the world is under 25. We know that with the right opportunity, young people have huge potential to make an impact in their communities. With ABA Foundation, you can be part of this experience too and show yourself and others what you're made of.
