Additionally, the slum lacks a professional antenatal care facilities which has caused so many maternal death and also increased infantile mortality rate. Likewise increase of preventable diseases.

Solution

The Makoko clinic project will provide a first hand health care delivery services which will eradicate the common preventable diseases and likewise offer an opportunity for better professional antenatal care , as such reduce maternal death rate in this community. Additionally, the proposed borehole will also serve as a source of portable water which will consequently reduce the rate of waterborne diseases.
