INSIDE/OUTSIDE PROJECT

 

Funded by EthiopiAid UK, this project combines daily supportive and educational Circles with outreach work for complete community health.

PHARMACY

The Clinic has a small pharmacy to fill prescriptions not only for the patients of the Clinic but also from the local hospital. 

 

OUR MISSION

To ensure that clients attending the Clinic feel safe, supported, and empowered in their health concerns, and are cared for by compassionate, happy, knowledgeable, and high-skilled staff who will always make the health and well-being of the client their priority. 

To ensure that clients have an individualised plan for their care, made in partnership with Clinic staff.

OUR FUNDING

Initially funded through philanthropic grants, and now supported by international charitable organisations and NGOs, the Clinic is aiming to be self-sufficient within two years, based on a charging system for services offered. This will also allow the Clinic to continue to provide on-going subsidised medical care and treatment to the poorest rural populations, alongside the general clinical operations.
