Community Medical Centre Update- Photo Essay


Back in February I was in Ruhanga and this what the community medical centre looked like. A few months on and I am amazed by the amount of work that has gone in

And here is a video clip from my visit

As you can there was an awful lot of work to do


A few months later and the side walls are on as well as the roof and the plastering has started


Ann- standing outside a nearly finished patients WC


The inside is plastered


This outside verandah will also form part of the waiting room – it is a great facility to have as folk can take shelter from the both and the sun and the rain


One of our army of volunteers hard at work with a paint brush! What a way to spend two weeks in the sun!


Another volunteer sealing the floor. I think he is having a whole lot of fun there!


View from the front- scaffolding is gone- Well almost


The foundations of the patients WC


All the hard work has paid off- painting done!



Yet another volunteer working on the benches for the patients waiting area


This is Ian our chief volunteer. Ian has been instrumental in getting the plaster and paint onto the walls.


The doors are on too and painted!


The verandah is done too

Photo update of work at the community health centre

Last week we announced that work had on the Community Health Centre had started in earnest. A big thank you to those that have heeded our call for support. It is a huge undertaking and we are grateful for all the support that we can get

It is all hands on deck now and even the children joined in by carrying a brick or two to speed things up

First things first- patient toilet is going in first- sanitation is a big aspect of improving the health of the community

The other aspect of our work is ensuring that all work where ever possible is undertaken by local people.


Stay tuned we will provide you with updates and if you would like to make a financial contribution please do so at
