High Adventure consulted with Canadian experts and developed an overall plan of school success that included an on-site medical clinic that would meet the needs of the school’s 600 student population and local villagers within a 10-mile perimeter.
The clinic has been recognized by leaders and therefore received government recognition, including free malaria medicines. Its reputation and community service continues to grow.
There is a longstanding need for safe and effective sanitation at the clinic, so the commonly used method of pit latrine can be replaced with a septic system, and in this, improving health by eliminating the pollution of the school’s ground water.
The clinic is prepared for solar operation and requires basic equipment to ensure its daily service at reduced cost to High Adventure’s onsite medical staff.
This clinic serves a very poor population and most cannot afford the basic cost of medicines. Tragically, even a local pastor died in his hut (before the clinic construction) when he could not afford the cost of medicine. The clinic needs small medicine subsidy each month.
