Project Description

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

1. Provide facilities to equip a functional maternity department for delivery of babies.

2. Provide functional facilities for operating theatre.

3.Provide laboratory equipment.

4. Provision of Protective equipment/gears

These equipment when provided will cater for persons spread across approximately twelve (12) communities as identified above.

Beneficiaries from this project will include: Pregnant women, Children, Trauma patients, Out patients, HIV-AIDS patients, Accident & Emergency patients, Community

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
