Why Health Care?
How close is your nearest emergency room? Your primary care physician? A pharmacy? The nearest hospital in Pomerini is two hours away. People depend on the local dispensary for their healthcare. Difficult labors often end with the death of the mother and/or the child on the road to the hospital.
With limited resources and medical staff the dispensary cannot offer much.
- $13,000 to tile surfaces, paint walls, and install windows. The space is brighter for patient visits and rooms can be more easily sterilized.
- $16,000 for medical equipment such as a washing machine, equipment sterilizer, microscopes and centrifuge
- $1,000 for medications and supplies.

Renovation Before and After Pictures
This is a picture of the laboratory before the renovation. Old, cracked vinyl surfaces create an unsanitary conditions. Lack of equipment prevent even the most basic tests.
This is a picture of the same counter after the new tiled surfaces were installed and one of the microscopes purchased. After we installed electrical line, a medical equipment sterilizer was also purchased for the clinic.
