For a long time, FWA had vision to extend its services offered in Kamenge community through our Ntaseka clinic. On one hand, the main objective is to make available all the services in the poor community of Kamenge where we are working. On the other hand, we must have the minimum package of service required by the Minister of public health and the fight against HIV/AIDS.
After visiting Canada in May 2017, Vancouver Island Monthly Meeting (VIMM) has pledged $ 21,400 (USD) to start construction work. It was in the month of November 2017. Thus we contracted an engineer to make plans and specifications in April 2018. Then, in May 2018, we contacted the National Laboratory of Building and Public Works to do the study of the soil.
We received funds through GlobalGiving Platform respectively as of June 25, 2018 ($ 65.70) and as of July 26, 2018 ($ 49.50). We used this total of $ 115.2 for the site installation. The Vancouver Funds reached us at the end of August 2018. At the same time, we received $ 440 through GG on August 24, 2018. With these funds, we began our construction project. We are in partnership with the construction company "Generation Trading Company" which closely follows this work.
With the amount already received and other funds that we hope to collect through GlobalGiving, we hope to complete the ground floor this year 2018. We have felt that this project can last three years.
