Microfinance SACCO annual meeting May 28, 2010

KIDA HOLDS SAVINGS AND CREDIT COOPERATIVE MEETING ON GRADED SITE FOR FUTURE HOSPITAL

Pictured here is the set-up for KIDA's microfinance annual meeting held on May 28th.  Since the membership has now grown to 491, several tents were rented to accommodate the expected crowd.  They were placed on one graded level, the future site of the outpatient clinic for KIDA's capital project which is to build a Health Center IV, a mini hospital that will provide much needed health services to the entire rural population surrounding KIDA. The general wards building (one of four buildings) is nearing completion, made possible by a recent grant of $77,118 from the Friends of Ruwenzori Foundation made in April.

KIDA's proposed Health Center IV is making excellent progress!  The picture below shows an early June, 2010 snapshot of the roof framing of the General Wards building (located behind the large tent shown above).  The building in progress has 3 large rooms for 4-6 inpatient beds each: a men's ward, a women's ward and a children's ward.  Other rooms provide space for waiting, treatment, nurse rooms and storage. The Friends of Ruwenzori commends KIDA for effective and efficient use of donated funds!
