Yotkom Uganda is registered in Australia with the Australian Charities and Non for Profits Commission.
Yotkom is an acholi word meaning "health".
This web site is designed to provide information on the health needs of the acholi community of Kitgum, Northern Uganda. It is also an opportunity to share about the people working as health professionals there and the projects which are being undertaken in the Kitgum community in an effort to improve the quality and availability of health care .
On the way to Kitgum we are staying over at Murchison Falls National Park. We travelled for about 7 hours on the road today. Picked up in a 4WD by our driver, Grace. The highlight has been seeing the falls and cooling off in the pool here at the resort when we arrived. Tomorrow we go for an early morning game drive and a boat trip up the Nile river. We can hear the hippos grunting from our rooms.
