O Nás

ABOUT

US

WHAT DOES EMOTER MEAN?

EMOTER is an abbreviation for Essential Medical Outreach and Treatment Rescue. The main focus of our work is medical outreaches. The resulting acronym “emoter” also means “the one who shows emotions”.

WHERE ARE WE HELPING?

Even though we are based in Brno, Czech Republic, we run our activities mainly in Uganda. Precisely in Nebbi district where we go with our project Medical Outreach.

We chose Nebbi district because it has more than 350 000 of inhabitants and only two hospitals.

EMOTER is a non-profit organization that brings medical care and improving the overall standard of living in Uganda to those who need us. We are a team of doctors, health professionals and other enthusiasts from the Czech Republic and Uganda who believe that health care is a basic human right for everyone, regardless of where they were born. Our mission is to improve the availability of basic health care in rural areas to people who do not normally have access to it. Our vision is to bring lasting improvement to the lives of vulnerable people in the West Nile region. humanitarian aid, non-governmental organization, 

Uganda

EMOTER was founded by three medical students. Now headed by our director Dr. Lenka Karahutova, the team is made up primarily of women, which we are very proud to say. 

In a few months, we learned the basics of accounting, programming, fundraising, and even bargaining for medicament prices. Find out how we are transparent and sustainable:

I highly appreciate the small organizations that want to change the world.

 

I think nobody in the world is alone. As the saying goes: "Man is not an island." And when the help is not only local, it shows the wide heart of helpers. It's great that you know the project in detail, that money from donors is not lost somewhere in the space. I keep my fingers crossed for you and I wish EMOTER a lot of strength.

MEDICAL OUTREACH
We provide medical care

Medical Outreach is a medical mission when our team of volunteers travel to remote areas of Uganda. It is basically “medicine in the jungle” because we build our mobile aid station where our team then provides primary treatment, laboratory tests, preventive care and medicines. During the four-day trip, we can treat more than 2,000 patients, which we also educate in the field of prevention.

PREVENTION
We fight infectious diseases

As part of the prevention program, we focus mainly on vaccination (for ex. against tetanus or HPV, which can cause cervical cancer), as well as the distribution of vitamins and deworming tablets. During trips and planned educational workshops, we teach children how to wash their hands properly and take care of their health. We keep careful records of all our patients to prevent revaccination with an already used vaccine.

HEALTH EDUCATION
We help raising a new generation

As part of an educational project, we organize educational workshops directly in schools and we focus on personal hygiene, reproductive health and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases and prevention of common diseases in the community such as malaria. However, during the coronavirus crisis, when schools were closed, we managed to react and educate as well, in the form of radio, which is the most used communication channel for locals.

CRAFT AND SKILLS TEACHING
Vzděláváme znevýhodněné skupiny

The project focuses on young adults who, due to lack of funds, are unable to finish formal schooling, with a special focus on disadvantaged groups such as single mothers or people with disabilities who face stigma. With our help, they learn not only practical skills such as tailoring, farming, woodworking or hairdressing, but also how to write a CV and prepare for a job interview, how to use a computer or smartphone to promote their business or how to manage finances and save.

2019

At that time, the idea of helping was born in the head of a Czech medical student and laboratory technician from Uganda.

AUTUMN 2020

We have not slowed down. We have sent masks, condoms and other aids to Uganda. We were learning, and in autumn, we won the jury’s award in the Social Impact Award competition and the prize of 40 000 CZK.

jaro 2022

In 2022  we received the Quality Label from the European Solidarity Corps as a certificate that our organization has the capacity to implement quality volunteer activities in support of humanitarian operations.

autumn 2022

In 2022, EMOTER was awarded as part of the SDGs awards, which are awarded by the Association of Social Responsibility for fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations. Despite great competition, we won 2nd place in the Development Cooperation, Peace and Partnership category.

léto 2023

We managed to build a house for the accommodation of volunteers and a new branch of EMOTER in Nebbi, which  it will ensure better running of the organization and in the future we plan to use it to regularly dispense medicines to chronically ill patients.

2028

Do roku 2028 chceme zajistit digitalizaci našich pacientských záznamů a zefektivnit tak naše procesy.

SPRING 2020

We started our own NGO, and already in March, we have treated more than 2,000 people during the medical outreach. Then the covid-19 pandemic made our activities much more difficult.

2021

In 2021, our project was supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic. We plan 6 outreaches and treat up to 12,000 citizens. New products should also be added to our e-shop during the year.

léto 2022

In 2022, our project was supported by SlovakAid (MFA SR). As part of the Little Project, we treated 8,517 patients and provided 7,679 preventive services in Nebbi in 6 months.

2023

V roce 2023 Evropský sbor solidarity podpořil projekt BUSHCORP of WN (Building skilled and healthy communities among rural people of West Nile Uganda), kde je EMOTER hlavní koordinátor pro další dvě neziskové organizace podílející se na projektu.

2024

V roce 2024 náš projekt znovu podpořilo MZV ČR. Plánujeme 5 výjezdů v každém z okresů Nebbi, Arua a Pakwach a ošetřit tak až 22 500 obyvatel.

2030

In the future, we want to start building our own hospital and school for medical personnel in Nebbi.
