Jane Shrimpton Clinic at Bizoha Humanist Nursery School Kahendero has acquired some medical equipment and drugs which is already empowering the medic to serve his work better.
The Clinic at Kahendero unlike other clinics the school runs serves health needs of pupils studying at the BiZoHa School free of charge while the locals pay for the medical services.
Kahendero stands out from the crowd as an area with scores of diseases and infection rates of HIV/Aids, promiscuity and drug and narcotics consuming is so high, there is high rate of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.
Since we opened the clinic, our medic there has so far attended to 6 cases of our pupils and 18 patients from the local community. We have equipped the clinic with some of the vital drugs to common diseases, malarial testing strips, equipment for tooth extraction, pregnancy tests,body temperature, pressure checking and family planning services.
We are however planning to establish lab services to screen out several diseases, hold some health related discussions with locals and reach out to teen mothers and help them in any way we can.
Our target is to make this clinic very viable and useful to the people of Kahendero. We however still lack some extra vital gadgets which we think can take our work to a greater height.
