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

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

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
