ETUNDA, 12 DEC (NAMPA) Founding President Sam Nujoma has registered his satisfaction with the operation of the clinic at Etunda, noting that it has helped close the health gap in the area.
Nujoma build the clinic through the Sam Nujoma Foundation on his farm, Etunda, located some 30 kilometres south of Otavi in the Otjozondjupa Region.
The clinic was handed over to the Ministry of Health and Social Services earlier this year, and mainly caterers for workers and their families of nearby farms.
It is open to the public and also treats accident victims from collisions occurring along the busy B1 highway.
Nujoma told Nampa here recently the clinic has brought about a positive change in the area, where there are many farm workers.
Since their farms are far from health centres and the fact that they do not often have money for transport, it had been difficult to get treatment, he said.
Nujoma said he was grateful that his family had been able to contribute to this achievement.
So far, two babies - a boy and a girl - were delivered at the clinic. It is staffed by two nurses who are accommodated in flats just behind the health facility.
