Lab Space Update

Walls have been painted. Ceiling completed and floor tiles waxed. Cabinet shutters have been installed and partitioning of the room to work compartments has been completed. There is running water in the laboratory. Electricity from the 4KW solar system continues to perform as expected. The tiles for the worktops and faucets have been fitted as well.

Screening Kits Receive

One thousand (1,000) screening kits (Sickle Scans) were received at the center in August for use in the lab. The kits are part of the items for equipping the sickle cell community laboratory. Logistics for screening have been worked out. Screening of children is expected to go operational in November 2018.

Gratitude

The Foundation and its beneficiaries continue to express their gratitude to all supporters of making this clinic a reality. Despite the political crisis and internal displacement of families, we are making every effort to bring the work to completion and to serve as committed.
