 The community of Wai, with a population of 1,200, is a mostly agrarian society, relying on subsistence  framing. This village is located in a region where health services are difficult to provide for. Diseases caused by poor sanitation; and inadequate resources for prenatal and postnatal care have caused hardship in the community which the existing clinic cannot support. The community is working with a local NGO called Tewoh Community Development Association to upgrade the current health care facility and bring additional resources to the region.

Our EWB team is exploring ways to help the community access comprehensive health care to alleviate high maternal and infant mortality. The team is also working to bring basic utilities to the clinic such as water, sanitation and energy as well as seeking partnerships with medical practitioners to ensure that the clinic will be stocked with adequate supplies.

The project team is planning on going on another assessment trip in Spring of 2018 to evaluate the development of wells or rain catchment system for the proposed health clinic. Your contributions will go towards funding data collection and assessment of existing water sources as well as future phases of the project.
