Project — Rumu Health Centre

November 27, 2020Aru, Project, Rumu Health Centre

Rumu village is right on the corner of north east Congo with Uganda and Sudan.  The busy health centre receives patients from all 3 countries. Semiliki supported the building of the maternity, which provides a safe place for women to have normal deliveries, or from where they can be referred to hospital if they need a C-section or other surgery.

Houses below the centre provide accommodation for the nurse-in-charge Anyomi and midwife.
