During 2016 “Hope in Christ Ministry” have built a clinic building on the site with the vision of providing medical care for the children at the orphanage/school and people in the adjacent shanty compound; currently it can take locals several hours walking to get to the nearest medical facility.
As a first step to getting the Clinic open, in July 2016, through the generosity of “Partners Across the Miles” electricity was connected and a borehole was sunk which together with the necessary infrastructure is now providing a reliable fresh water supply.
During late 2016 Paul Swala and the local team worked hard at getting the clinic painted, fitted with washable flooring and basically equipped. A Government Health License was required before the Clinic could be opened for work which was funded by “Partners Across the Miles”.
Two local doctors volunteered some of their time and on February 3rd 2017 the Clinic officially opened with a Government License in place.
The challenge now is to meet the ongoing costs of staffing and providing the clinic with equipment & medicine so if you can help in anyway please contact Vera & Brian.
