Yotkom June Appeal:
Operating Theatre Equipment

The Yotkom Project is running an Appeal for Operating Equipment to assist in providing high quality healthcare of patients.

Dr Andrew Wright and his wife, Anne were recently awarded Australia Day honours for their long term work overseeing the Yotkom Project in Kitgum, Uganda.

They are working on expanding the health facility and upgrading the facilities; and they need our help.

Healthserve is trying to assist them to purchase:

A clinically appointed operating Table

Operating Theatre Lights

A biochemical analyser

We are aiming to raise $20,000 AUD.

Can you assist Yotkom to continue to deliver quality health care in Uganda?

All donations are tax deductible.

What this equipment will do for The Yotkom Clinic: a message from Andrew Wright

1. A biochemical analyser for our laboratory which would help the medical team with better diagnosis and monitoring of our patients.

This would help us test liver function and kidney function. We have laboratory technicians who staff our lab and can use this machine very well.

We will buy it in Kampala and have available regular servicing and repair. 

2. A theatre bed for our operating room. We are currently using a very small narrow bed which does not go up and down and it makes it very difficult for our medical staff.

We also need a better bed to be able to give spinal anaesthetics. 

3. A theatre light to illuminate the operating field and assist greatly in operations that require working in delicate or difficult regions of the body

Healthserve Event: South Sudan Project –

                                       an evening with Rev Santino Yuot


Last Saturday Evening 13th May Healthserve hosted an evening with Rev Santino Rang Yuot, who has spent the last five months back  in his home region in South Sudan exploring the critical healthcare needs in their area. He met both with the community members and leaders and discussed the initiative of building a Healthcare Clinic in Wedweil, as a regional healthcare clinic in this northern area of South Sudan.


There are many challenges in working in South Sudan but the communities there are in desperate need.


Our work with Santino on this project is ongoing and we hope it will bear fruit in the months to come. Please continue to support Healthserve’s partnerships in Africa; in South Sudan and Uganda.

Healthserve Australia Easter Appeal 2017



Easter Appeal




Healthserve Australia and CMDFA 

“Welcome to 2017 BBQ”

Twenty-three people gathered in Dr and Mrs Burke's

residence in Carlingford

on Saturday 4th February for a 

BBQ to celebrate the ongoing work of Healthserve Australia

and CMDFA and launch the year's activities for 2017.

The evening began with a BBQ, and then progressed with a talk from Ben Reardon about his recent time in PNG. Ben and his wife Eleanor, went to PNG for a ten-day tour to survey the current medical practices and needs in rural PNG. We thank him for his powerpoint presentation and explanation of the challenges and problems faced by the PNG people regarding national healthcare. There was a short Q and A that followed and then a wider discussion on the work of Healthserve and CMDFA led by some insightful questions from some of the medical students. We concluded the agenda with a lovely dessert course.
