The initial objective was to create an operational clinic from a bat-infested derelict building. The Clinic was completed and used daily by 30-40 patients but its very existence created another problem. In order for the Ministry of Health to staff the Clinic two units of residential accommodation had to be built. As a result, ProjectsNow Musokwe Project N° 2 was funded, constructed and handed over to the Ministry of Health.
The next facility on the local community wish list was a Maternity Facility. ProjectsNow Challenge N° 3. ProjectsNow made the wish come true and pregnant mothers no longer had to endure home births or an extensive ‘trek’ to the nearest maternity facility. Included in the development is a dental surgery with solar lighting and power to allow night time births.
But inevitably the issue of residential accommodation for the Ministry of Health appointed maternity nurses immediately became an issue; hence ProjectsNow Project N° 4 support for 2 additional homes. A decision was made in November 2017 to support the construction of a new 2 unit semi-detached residential building.
