The Brickworks is supporting Medic Assist International in the construction of a new Primary Health Care Centre for the Diocese of KajoKeji. Work started in September and this photo shows progress in late November. Completion is due for mid-2016.
Keeping vital vaccines at the right temperature in a hot climate with an intermittent power supply can be a problem. But thanks to a gift from Southampton Rotary Club, Martha Clinic now has a brand new solar powered vaccine fridge that keeps everything cool 24/7.
In November, thanks to a grant from the UK charity, African Revival, the Diocese of Yei and The Brickworks were able to begin construction of four badly needed new classrooms for Lizira Primary School, in Yei. The photo shows the official “start on site” with the ground being blessed by Archdeacon Moses Modi as the school committee looked on.
We would like to congratulate Jackson Yossa for graduating as a Clinical Officer from University in Aru, DRC. Jackson was sponsored by The Brickworks and is now working full time at the Martha Clinic with responsibility for a UNICEF-funded malnutrition programme.
Three more students from KajoKeji have been selected to train as midwife, Clinical Officer and Laboratory Technician. We visited this trainee midwife at the new midwifery training school at KajoKeji town and we were impressed by the College’s very high standards.
Over the past four years, about 25 staff from the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester have made visits to Yei, as part of the link with Yei Civil Hospital. The teams work alongside local staff, training, encouraging, learning suggesting things and even fixing broken hospital equipment. The local staff are full of praise for the team and would like the visits to be longer and more frequent. The link is with the Martha Clinic as well as the Yei National Health Training Institute and Yei Civil Hospital Maternity Unit. The photo shows the team at the end of their visit in November 2015.
