Medical Clinic Ground Breaking!
And the name will be: Centre De Sante Bika-Fissa Morowaya.
which roughly translates to Health Center - Today is Better or Change is Coming.
The village chose a nice location for this clinic near the school and the first drilled well.
Dr. Sekouba Saran Conde
Dr. Sekouba Conde grew up in Morowaya, studied medicine at a university in Conakry and is currently a practicing physician there.
He has agreed to return to the village with his family and become the village doctor.
A Doctor and Medical Clinic for Morowaya
Our initial fundraising goal is $11,000
Common illnesses such as malaria, diarrhea and yellow fever are caused by insects bites and parasites. Other prevalent health concerns in this area of Guinea are infections due to lacerations, respiratory infections, and sickness brought on by childbirth for mothers and their newborn babies.
Dr. Conde needs a medical microscope to examine blood, saliva, urine, and fecal matter for a diagnosis and determine treatment. He will train with Dr. Ansouman Conde at the government hospital in Conakry before moving to the village. In Guinea this microscope costs $3,500.
The training and some support for his family will cost about $1,500.
As this medical training is taking place the people in the village will be building a house for him and a small building to start the clinic in. The leaders of Morowaya have selected the parcel of land and have started clearing the trees. The buildings will be made from cement/concrete and have metal roofs. This will cost an additional $6,000.
The "Friends" have thoughtfully prepared a step-by-step plan allowing time to measure the progress and evaluate when to move forward.
