GSF - Special D & D Clinic Program
It is our great pleasure to have your helping hands for our community.
First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to introduce our village. There are 34 VDCs are in Solukhumbu district. Among of them Waku Village Development Committee is one of remote VDC in Solukhumbu. Health and Education facilities, already severely lacking, are moving backward instead of forward. There are at least eight thousand people who are out of reach of even basic Education and Healthcare. A sub-health post was established 15 years ago but it cannot provide enough services because of severe geographical challenges and lack of staff. Dozens of people are dying without any treatment or medicines. These tragedies made us think, so we decided to tell the government and sent many requests as well as applications to run an out-reach clinic. Our requests were unsuccessful. We were still in search of way to establish a clinic and support to the people through the health project.
We have constructed a clinic building containing 6 rooms. The building exterior is finished and we continue to furnish and build-out the interior. We hired an ANM professional to provide treatment at the facility and many villagers come every day for care.
We have ongoing challenges such as obtaining necessary medicines, paying staff salary and more. Despite these obstacles, we are determined to continue the project and even to expand it.
