THE HOPE CLINIC
PROVIDING MEDICAL CARE
There are a number of communicable diseases that are common to Zambia. These diseases, which include malaria, HIV/AIDS, cholera, and typhoid present critical challenges for the local healthcare institutions which are overcrowded, understaffed, and short of medicines and supplies.
Compounding the battle against the prevention and treatment of communicable diseases is the growing rate of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease and Type II diabetes, which cause thousands of premature deaths each year. Other prevalent NCDs, affecting people in all age groups, include sickle cell anemia, certain types of cancers, and chronic respiratory diseases.
When we take our children for medical treatment, we are faced with long lines and uncomfortable conditions. A simple trip to the doctor can take the whole day. Once completed, Hope Clinic will provide basic medical treatment for the children and staff of The Village, the students, families and teachers of the Academy, and many others who live within walking distance of our campus. We can’t wait for our dream to become a reality!
In 2016, we poured the foundation for the clinic. Now we need to raise $70,000 to cover the costs associated with building the clinic structure and furnishing it with up-to-date medical equipment, medicines, and associated supplies. You can make a secure, tax-deductible donation of any amount toward the construction of Hope Clinic by using the button on this page.
