Mama Maria Wellness Clinic – Kenya

Sponsoring needed to help building a Health clinic in Kenya

Background – Mama Maria is a non-profit organisation that provides medical care in rural areas where no other health care is available. At present they are working out of a rented facility where they see over 50 patients a day in overcrowded conditions. It is being funded predominantly by a registered charity called Village Volunteers – http://www.villagevolunteers.org.

The Health Clinic Building -Due to the huge demand for medical services, Mama Maria Kenya has purchased 3.5 acres of lakefront land to construct a bigger, more effective clinic with expanded services. Compared to the current 6-room, rented clinic, the new clinic will belong to Mama Maria Kenya, and will be designed to grow as needs, services and funds allow in the future – http://www.mamamaria.org.

Architects without Borders have provided the schematic design for the Mama Maria Clinic. Construction costs for the first phase of the building have been estimated at £40,000 but so far only £8000 has been raised/ pledged. Construction was due to start in September but now that has been pushed back to December with the plans which have been modified so the clinic can be built in stages – which will be less satisfactory and less cost effective. For a schematic design proposal of the clinic, follow the contacts below.

Funding for the building of the clinic is a problem so if you feel that you can help by offering any sort of sponsorship or would simply like any further information please get in contact with either Jonty Craig at jontycraig@hotmail.com or Shana Greene on shana@villagevolunteers.org. Or you can sponsor directly through Village Volunteers’ website at http://www.villagevolunteers.org/donation/donate-info.php (be sure to select Mama Maria Wellness Clinic in the “program you would like to donate to” field).

Any little helps!
