World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) Donates Several Equipments to IUIU FC Kabojja

The start of the nursing programme was simplified further by a donation of an assortment of several equipment including computers, wide-screen display TV sets, printers and prayer masts among other things. The kind donation was made by the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) – Africa region office.

Dr. Abdallah Alhuthail, the Head of Committee of AWAMY in Uganda said the donation was made in accordance with the organisation’s goals of supporting and caring for the youth around the world.

He explained that WAMY is a global independent organization with membership in the United Nations.

The IUIU nursing school is located at the Kabojja-based campus, has state of the art teaching facilities including a 60-seater computer laboratory, a several lecture rooms, a fully-fledged practicals/skills laboratory among other facilities.

During a brief tour of the facilities, Dr. Ahmed Kaweesa Ssengendo, the Rector of IUIU told Dr. Alhuthail that they intend to kick-off with a certificate course in nursing, before introducing the diploma course.

The opening of a nursing school could be seen perhaps as long overdue, considering the huge demand for health workers in the country, but also because of the fact that the University already has competencies for teaching health workers at its medical school located at Kampala campus.
