Clinic for Butoloogo
The nearest clinic for the women of Butoloogo is about three hours walk away from their village. Going unexpectedly into labour means the chances of a baby surviving are very slim. And any complications mean that the mother’s life is at serious risk, too. Medical help is just too far away.
In 2017 we were asked to help, could we raise the money to build a clinic? It felt like a daunting task but amazingly we have been given donations for the building itself, the water tank, latrine and solar panel. Building work is now complete and this is how it looked in October 2019.
Equipment now needed
But now we need to buy the equipment. Can you help us this Christmas?
Instead of buying someone a Christmas present, ask them if they’d like to donate the cost of the gift to help us to resource the building. Or suggest to someone that instead of giving you something they could donate an item or some money towards a piece of equipment. You could make a real difference and save a life. Who doesn’t want to do that at Christmas? If you go for it – the rest is easy…turn over and see just how easy!

On behalf of the residents of Butoloogo, many thanks and Happy Christmas!
