Uvinza Medical Clinic
The objective of the Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) clinics project was to improve the care and treatment for patients at Uvinza Clinic by providing a solar power system and other important medical technologies. The clinic has significantly improved its services as a result of the project.
According to Hamisa Kambi the head nurse, the most important improvement has been lighting and patient beds which has allowed for 24 hour health care.
Unfortunately, the solar system has had some problems which require fairly expensive maintenance and replacement of components. We are currently looking into having a good solar technician assess the needs of the system before we look for ways to restore the system to full capacity.
