Achievements:

  • ¬ Parents have reduced cost on medicine

Challenges:

  • ¬ Work is much compared to the time set for it
  • ¬ Bed rest is missing in our clinic
  • ¬ Some of the parents leave sick pupils at home and come alone for medicine hence hindering tests to be carried out.
  • ¬ Distance is long.
  • ¬ Some medicine is bought in small quantities due to lack of enough money
  • ¬ Over working.
