Built in partnership with the Kibungo Anglican Diocese and the Ngoma District Mayor, this clinic should be completed in 2018 in a village about 15 miles from Kibungo. It has been primarily funded by Callaway County (MO) supporters through the HFC’s Rwanda Community Partnership that links Ngoma District with Callaway County as “partner communities”. The location was selected after a group of Westminster College (MO) college students conducted a health needs assessment in Kazo sector. The facility sits halfway between the City of Kibungo and the Gashanda Health Center, thus providing a health clinic every 15 miles.
GASHANDA CLINIC, RWANDA
Built in partnership with the Kibungo Anglican Diocese, the Gashanda Health Post is located in a renovated district office building in Gashanda, Rwanda, which was generously donated by the District Government in Kibungo. Renovation on the existing structure was completed in March of 2010 and the clinic opened in February 2011. This clinic has added a birthing center and is now serving approximately 500 patients each week. Support for this project has been supplied by a matching grant from Rotary International in partnership with Rotary Clubs in Kigali, Rwanda, and Mount Vernon, WA. The clinic was successfully transferred to the Ngoma District Office of Health in 2015.
ROTA CLINIC, KENYA
The Rota Dispensary/Clinic serves an area of 50,000 inhabitants in the western Kisumu area and serves as the flagship dispensary for the Kisumu Ministry of Health. The clinic has added a large birthing center and was by the Rota Village, the Ministry of Health, and Humanity for Children. In 2017, after completing its start-up/empowerment agreement of 5-7 years, HFC transitioned leadership of the clinic to the village and the Ministry of Health. Its success led to it being considered a “model dispensary/clinic” due to its collaborative strategy, services rendered, and health needs met.
