||The project is part of the integrated development action carried out by MMI, SVI and SCAIP in the Morrumbene District, and it is complementary to the support that MMI offers in support of basic public healthcare services in the most remote villages of the district. Hurricane Dineo severely affected the Morrumbene District on the 15 of February 2017, and caused serious consequences on the health centers that MMI collaborates with. The center facing the hurricane’s strongest impact is in Barrane, an area with significant deficits in terms of medical facilities.|
||Construction and equipment of a new small Emergency Ambulatory Unit (health center) in the Barrane area, Morrumbene District.|
|Activities||Building a new medical center, in bricks, supplied with:
- Room for emergency services, ambulatory unit and maternity ward
- Necessary equipment (furniture and basic healthcare supplies)
- Toilets (latrines) for healthcare staff and patients
- Water supply system with overhead water tank, giving access to drinking water to the community of the area.
As per the bequeather’s wish, the building will be dedicated to the “Guardian Angels” [Angeli Custodi], and it will be handed to local healthcare authorities so that it will become part of the national health system. This passage will ensure continuity of service, maintenance and functioning over time.
