Brisas del Mar

£5,000 goal

Campaign created 12 months ago
The clinic in Brisas del Mar, IPS Clinton Rabb, is in urgent need of funds to keep its doors open for the next six months. The clinic provides essential health services to the 3000 people in the villages of Brisas and those around it - comprising an exam room, a labor and delivery room (also used for minor surgery), a dental office, a pharmacy, and a room for overnight stays.

The next nearest health center is 14 miles away by dirt track - a journey which can take over two hours in rainy conditions, and which is usually only passable by motorbike. If the residents of Brisas are fortunate to make the journey successfully, they are often denied access due to the discrimination that is rife against indigenous and black people.

Please help us to keep the clinic operating, while we seek both government assistance and funding from other donors. It costs 6500 USD (5000 GBP) per month to run the clinic: approximately 5000 USD (3800 GBP) to cover the salaries for a doctor, bacteriologist, dentist, pharmacist, nurse plus administrative and maintenance staff; and 1500 USD (1200 GBP) to pay for medicines, electricity costs and other needed materials.
