Hope Again Medical Clinic

Bringing Hope to the Family's Hope Again Medical Clinic provides medical services to an average of 330 patients per month. The American team consults with the clinic staff most afternoons after the outreaches. We have also donated a centrifuge for the lab, a fetal monitor and a baby scale, and have provided instruction to the staff on how to use them.

Remember her?--

--She came to the clinic (with her daughter) to get tested for HIV as suggested during our first outreach. She was negative.
