Starting a Nutritional Centre
Nutrition is inadequate in the community with about 60% children malnourished or stunted. We want to start a coaching centre where they will have some teaching and would get some nutritious food.
To carry the patients from St.Luke’s to other hospitals when they need to be referred. Other local commercial vehicles are expensive and not reliable when they are needed fast.
Price is about £7000/- So far we have raised around £3500/-
Boundary Fencing - ongoing
We are putting 4000ft of boundary fencing with GI pipes and concrete pillars. the fence of chainlink netting and 5ft high. Mainly to stop animals and human intruders. With the fence we will be able to provide a safe and private environment. Also, we would be able to produce vegetables, fruits etc inside the campus. Stealing from the hospital is also a problem without the fence. We received a generous legacy from a well wisher whose connections to St Lukes go back a long way and the work has started. We need another £2700/- to complete the whole work.
We are running on solar at the moment but will need more electricity when we start the inpatient facilities.
