The “Buganda Youth Council / World Faith Uganda Dental Clinic” opened its doors in July 2012. The Dental Clinic aims at providing youth with affordable dental health care. Patients only pay a small amount of money needed to maintain the equipment, pay the rent, and guarantee the sustainability of the project.

The Dental Clinic is managed by Richard Kabanda, a professional dentist and board member of the Buganda Youth Council. A young member of the Buganda Youth Council who is in his last year of dental medicine at Mulago Dental School assists him in his work.

With the assistance of the Ministry of Youth and the Ministry of Health and thanks to our own savings we could afford a dental chair as well as the most important medical equipment. Our goal is to fully equip our clinic within the next months in order to offer the best service possible to our patients.

Kampala — The Inter Religious Council has called on media houses to practice responsible journalism during today’s mayoral polls.

Addressing a breakfast meeting in Kampala on Friday, the chairperson of the National Task Force on Peace and Conflict Transformation, Bishop Zac Niringiye, said media houses should condemn wrongdoing and acts of violence during today’s elections. “It is your [media] responsibility to run stories that do not incite the public into violence come Monday (today) and that’s why we decided to meet with you for the good of peace,” he said.

The election for the Kampala mayor on February 23 was called off after the exercise turned violent with a cross section of supporters of the candidates engaging in running battles and accusing each other of attempting to rig the elections. READ MORE
