Finish work to rehabilitate rural health centers in two villages, total population 2,550
These two health centers are staffed by doctors and nurses from the Ministry of Health at least one day per week, and serve a population of 2,550 people in two rural communities that lack access to potable water, sanitation and health services. The previous year the Rotary Club partners had done major repairs & funded ongoing training for 4 health promoters plus 4 first aid kits. Building on that experience, this project expanded to ongoing training for 6 community health promoters, 6 in-home first aid kits w/ nebulizers, blood pressure cuffs & glucometers. This project also completed the renovations to the health centers, making them 100% usable by restoring electricity & plumbing, replacing damaged floors, adding wheelchair accessible ramps, interior divisions, benches, tables & cabinets, and finally painting. Members of partner Clubs in the U.S. visited to help with renovations and re-inaugurate the two centers.
