The camp registered various patients with both dental and eye problems, those in need of general surgery, and those with ear-nose and throat complications, among others.
According to the Mayor of Bugesera District, Mr. Richard Mutabazi, the medical exercise has drawn a well composed team of experts ready to reach the masses.
He expressed his profound gratitude to the high turn up of patients, saying that it is a special moment to see the military off the battle ground and offering medical services to the citizens.
