For Christmas the clinic gets some repairs and a complete new paint job. See the before and after.
The second new restroom facility is nearly completed and ready for use. Up until now, the entire school and those that live on the plantation have all been using one facility. This second facility will provide for the 600 students and adults that are in the main compound in Cyimbili
The health center and the secondary school of Cyimbili have been separated by a small river for several years. It was a big problem.
