The need to start a healthcare unit within our priority area of operation was driven by face to face accountability of water related sickness within a community that Frankline Auko -( Executive director restoring hopes ministry ) was encountering during outreach mission of water treatment, Offering education on the importance of drinking clean water within the community is a noble step to go but still the need to offer special treatment on these water related diseases and common diseases within the community became a green light to open way for the community clinic.
Among the common diseases in our community are malaria, worms, hypertension, arthritis, and typhoid,T.B ,HIV/AIDs ,skin diseases e.t.c
We have one Nurse and 5 community workers ,each in control of 10 households, they pay visit and give as report on the health condition of the family members, where there need agent attention the they refer to the clinic to get medication attention.
Through our partnership with AFCAids we have receives medical supplies that have aided our personnel in treating such illness within our community.In our two year partnership we have received Two – 40″ containers of medical supplies and children supplies for our community.
offloading a 40″ container with medical and school supplies
