The Operational Costs Chapter provides support to the basic logistics of running a hospital—without its services, Lacor would be unable to offer its medical treatments. From supporting salaries to ensuring consistent electricity, cleaning services, and the transportation of medical supplies, this chapter acts as a solid foundation upon which the Lacor Hospital can stand.
Johnson is the Project Officer for projects in Italy, Canada, and Uganda. He told us that since the hospital was created to help poor people, the costs for treatment were not as high as other hospitals, and that the biggest costs at Lacor Hospital were the human resources –despite employees having lower salaries than other NGOs can offer. Helping Lacor Hospital cover its running costs ensures that it can offer accessible health services, thereby fighting disease and poverty in the region.

Every year, many people commit to helping a specific chapter. Each chapter is crucial in supporting the Lacor Hospital as it carries out its everyday medical tasks while also expanding its capacity to care for all Ugandans.
