ImageAmy Williams, who is affiliated with Bushenyi Alliance for Rural Health and Development (BARHD), spoke to Sooner Rotary Tuesday about the needs for basic health care and health and nutrition education in the rural areas of Uganda.

Williams and her husband, dentist Dr. Ron Williams, travel to Uganda on behalf of BARHD each summer to assess the operation of health clinics that BARHD sponsors, and to conduct dental clinics.  They also distribute malaria nets  which help reduce the cases of malaria which are rampant in the rural areas. 

The need for clean water and helping provide for the drilling of water wells is also a focus of BARHD efforts, Williams told the group.
