Dear friends, we are so excited about the continuing progress on this clinical facility! We have been now seeing patients in the newly constructed clinic building for a few months, and our staff and patients are all delighted to have such a spacious, well-lighted, and well-ventilated structure to work in! Things are still a bit 'rustic,' as we are still working on getting all the doors and windows in place, wiring in the electricity, etc. However, even in this state, it is still such a great improvement over our previous clinical facility!
Over the last few weeks, we finally got running water up and working reliably, which was yet another major step forward! I am attaching a few pictures of our construction team digging in the water line, to give you a sense of this process.
Since we anticipate that all the finishing work on this first clinic building will be done in the next month or so, we are now starting to move into fundraising for the second phase of this project! In the second phase, we will build another building adjacent to the first one. However unlike the first building, which is used just for seeing patients, the second building will be an open classroom and multipurpose space, where we can hold training sessions for health workers and educational classes for members of the community. It will also house office space for our social work staff.
Stay tuned for updates from us regularly on how this second phase is progressing. As always we appreciate your continued support, and we hope that you will stay with us as we move forward!
