Current Challenges

Currently the clinic is facing two main challenges:

1. DECREASING THE COST OF MEDICATION TO PATIENTS
Due to the extreme poverty in Senga Bay, many patients are unable to afford medication at the current rate of K500 (US $3.60). Our aimis to reduce this cost to a more affordable K50 (US $0.36). This will enable many more patients to have access to medications. This reduction in fees will require the clinic to fundraise US $2,000 every month.

2. FEEDING MALNOURISHED CHILDREN
We are currently seeking sponsorship for our feeding program for malnourished children. The program feeds an average of 55 children per day. During the rainy season when there is not a harvest the numbers of children fed daily increase dramatically. The program costs K70,000 per month, or US $500.
