Maternity Construction

, ,

The construction of Cirunga Maternity is making great progress. The roof is on, the window frames are in and so is the structure to support the ceiling.

Still to complete are:

  • the floor and ceiling
  • the window panes and
  • the medical equipment

To date, we’ve helped the construction with donations in excess of $10,000. The construction has also been helped by additional funds accessed by Bukavu Medical Coordination from the International Rescue Committee.

Local people have contributed on three occasions; carrying rocks and sand as well as providing cash donations of their own.

We’re hoping that within the next few months, the centre will be ready to open and we’re truly excited about the huge impact the maternity will have on its community of 15,000 people.
