Building of a Health Centre
This year we were able to successfully complete our first healthcare project in Nessemtenga. Until now, the 15,000 people around Nessemtenga were treated under miserable hygienic conditions and without the necessary medical resources and equipment. The new construction of the health center is therefore particularly close to our hearts. With its completion, we will offer approx. 1,200 – 1,500 people/month a place to go for basic medical care. The buildings consist of an infirmary, a maternity ward, a pharmacy, a washhouse, sanitary facilities, a waste incinerator and a pavilion outside. Power for the infirmary is provided by an off-grid solar system. It is very important to us to raise awareness and educate the local people. We are therefore planning to hold various events on the topics of nutrition, contraception and AIDS.
