Completed : OSARARA CLINIC – Clinic Building Phase 1

About the Project

Osarara Clinic serves a population of around 4500 people but the building was condemned and is verging on collapse now. ABW believes that building a new clinic with ample water collection would return centralized health care to the community, freeing the clinical officer from extensive travelling and allowing him more time to dedicate to health care. The first phase of the project would include the front two-thirds of the floor plan and a water collection system. The system would include a ground-level tank and a pump to supply a rooftop tank to supply the building by gravity, and to supply neighbouring buildings.
