Bachuma Hospital Well - Ethiopia

by Village Health Partnership
Bachuma Hospital Well - Ethiopia

Summary

The Bachuma hospital's construction was completed roughly three years ago, however, it has yet to open due to an inadequate water supply. Due to this shortage, the hospital is unable to provide comprehensive care to the surrounding communities. VHP is committed to raising funds to construct a well and assisting in the installation.

Challenge

The Bachuma hospital, located in the Bench Maji Zone in South Western Ethiopia, serves Bachuma, the surrounding communities, and local villages. Its construction was completed roughly three years ago, however, it has yet to open due to an inadequate water supply. While complete services cannot be provided, patients continue to visit the maternity waiting areas built by VHP. Since the hospital does not have access to clean and sanitary water, it cannot treat many patients.

Solution

Partnering with WEFTA and Rotary, VHP is dedicated to bringing clean water to the Bachuma hospital. Together, we are planning to install a well on the hospital's grounds. This well is estimated to serve over 200,000 people in the surrounding communities.

Long-Term Impact

This project will bring clean and sanitary water to the Bachuma hospital, decreasing the risk for communicable diseases and allowing the hospital to provide effective healthcare to the local community.
