HOPE FOR THE ORPHANS
new clinic construction complete!
With one room and a small storage area, with no electricity or running hot water,
and with only the most basic supplies and drugs, the clinic at Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care
has been providing first aid, treatment for minor ailments, and life-saving care
for HIV-positive children for years. Without a new clinic registered with the government, the clinic is in danger of losing AIDS medication and other vital supplies provided by UNICEF.
The clinic is staffed by one nurse (Beauty) and one nurse aide who work tirelessly to educate,
treat and refer patients, even making "house calls" to help ensure the health of their patients.
When more urgent care is needed, they transport the children many bumpy miles to the nearest hospital or clinic, accompanying them and advocating for them as needed. But without supplies from UNICEF these two dedicated women will be helpless in the
face of such overwhelming need.
The good news: construction is complete and registration is underway in 2023.
About $100,000 has been raised so far, and efforts are underway to equip and open the facility.
Will you help us complete this urgently needed facility?
