Conclusion of Busogo Health Center Water Project – Rwanda
This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Jessica McGhie. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.
The project was to bring water to the consultation and pharmacy rooms and build a sink in the pharmacy stock room.
This health center was selected not only for its need for running water in critical services, but because it has good administration. Before the project began there were elaborate plans, including locally available supplies and laborers, to bring running water into the health center.
Project funds were used to pipe running water in from a nearby water source, and to build sinks in the pharmacy and primary consultation room.
I believe the health center contributed about $150 of its own funds to complete the project.
The staff was absolutely elated and grateful when I checked on the project after its completion. The titulaire, normally a very shy woman, was laughing and beaming with pride as she took me on a tour of her newly improved facilities, and the pharmacist did a demonstration of how she cleans her supplies (and her hands) all the time now.
We thank Jessica for completing another great project. We again extend our thanks to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding.
