4 Before the addition of this new wing, the health center was not big enough, and male patients sometimes stayed in the same room where women gave birth,” said Mandera Rachele Mania, women’s representative at Moli- Tokuro.

5 The new building, built by the Community Needs Initiative, includes a maternity ward, an intake ward, consultation and delivery rooms, as well as three solar-powered staff units.

6 “Our women used to travel 60 kilometers to access health services such as antenatal and postnatal care in Nimule, but that will no longer be necessary.

7 It means a lot to all of us,” said Area Director Margret Oliver.

8 Lodai Pascal Woyakori, State Minister of Health, highlighted another advantage of better access to health care in this part of Magwi County, a county that has recently been affected by inter-communal violence between farmers and cattle herders.

9 “This is also something that will bring the communities that live here back together, so I see it as an important development to foster peace as well,” he said.
