By Muhiddin Tojiev - Partnerships and Fundraising Coordinator
Thank you very much indeed for your continuous support and donations to our organization.
We would like to update you on the recent developments with this project.
After we obtained the necessary approval of EURO 10,000 grant from the German Embassy in Dushanbe, we informed the Executive Authorities of Panjakent District (in our target health centre location), and they proposed to consider the possibility of construction of a new health centre including two non-emergency maternity rooms. Based on this discussion, with a perspective on mobilizing more donations, we approached other donors, including German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ) Tajikistan. The GIZ Country Director for Tajikistan introduced to us the Project on Improved Maternal, Infant and Child Nutrition in Rural Tajikistan implemented by The German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ) and financed by the EU. As a result of our discussions, the Project Director expressed her readiness to consider the possibility of constructing a new health centre depending on the outcomes of the initial assessment aiming to identify the need for construction of a new health centre.
Therefore, we have been in trilateral negotiations between the NGO Sadoqat, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Republic of Tajikistan, and the above-mentioned GIZ Project. According to our last agreement, the GIZ Project's Construction Specialist is expected to visit the target health centre in the nearest future and conduct his assessment.
In case GIZ agrees to construct a new health centre (which we expect it'll be as of today's situation), Sadoqat will support the refurbishment part. Otherwise, Sadoqat will jointly with the Project renovate the existing building.
We are keen to report in a timely manner on the use of your precious donations, however, the need assessment and the negotiation with GIZ will take some time that we consider beneficial to our project. Since we are working towards the assurance that the community will obtain the maximum benefits of this project, we believe it does deserve our patience.
Sadoqat welcomes any suggestions and/or recommendations from your side in relation to this progress. In the meantime, we sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding and be assured that we will timely update you on the progress of this negotiation.
