Ibambo Clinic & Health Centre

Progress with this project was severely hampered by responsibility for the clinic being transferred from Urambo District Council to that in Kaliua District.
The bureaucratic problems have now been overcome and the clinic is open, albeit with a limited service.

2018 update

The clinic finally opened at Easter 2018 and is now providing a limited service for villagers.

Full service will only be possible when there is on-site accommodation for medical staff and a reliable supply of good quality water.

Our Ibambo Project 2018 aims to raise £15,000 to provide these necessities.

2016 update

Sadly even though the building of the clinic is now complete the clinic is still not open. The problem is that there now needs to be a staff house and toilets before Kaliua District will register the clinic. FUM have been told the government could find staff but cannot do this until the staff house and toilets are in place.

Maybe this is a project the Kaliua District, the local population and FUM can work on together? Certainly there is a great need for a medical facility in Ibambo which is a long way from the nearest clinic and even further from the hospital in Urambo.

The clinic building is at last nearing completion.
Cranbrook School students have painted the inside of the building, leaving the builders to complete the external rendering and painting.

Hopefully the clinic will open in the not too distant future.
