Our current project, started in Fall 2017 is to construct a separate maternity ward at the Point de Santé medical clinic in the town center (Medina) of Mbour.
Currently, expectant mothers and their newborns are cared for in rooms shared with patients being treated for diseases, some contagious. A separate maternity ward is necessary to ensure adequate health for both mothers and children.
Through a generous grant from our friends at International Foundation, we have been able to support the construction of this important project. We are currently in the fundraising stage to support an independent solar energy installation to support the clinic’s energy needs. Please consider donating today or contacting us for sponsorship opportunities to support this vital work.
