Conclusion of San Pedro Nonualco Medical Clinic Project – El Salvador
This project has been successfully completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Rhett Williams. To see the history of the project CLICK HERE.
The potable water and bathroom project in the Parish Medical Clinic “Immaculate Conception” in the municipality of San Pedro Nonualco, department of La Paz, El Salvador has been completed.
A sink was installed in the general practitioner’s consultation room, as well as in the dentist’s room. The dentist also received a drain for all loose fluids. Two bathrooms, one for male and one for females, were constructed in front of the medical clinic. Finally a 1,100 L tank was installed in the clinic to provide water for the clinic on a more permanent basis.
The system has been functioning for six months and has provided the doctors a way to carry out their job in a more sanitary way, while at the same time providing the sick and elderly an alternative to the steep descent/climb to the rapidly filling latrines out back.
We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funds for this project.
