Ngwenya Temporary Health Clinic

Nurse conducting child check-ups at Ngwenya Clinic

Until 2018, community members in Ngwenya, a sub-village of Milola, had no government health clinic. They had to travel to the Milola Dispensary for basic health services, which was difficult for most Ngwenya households. To increase access to health services, villagers constructed a hut where clinic services could be provided by staff from the Milola Dispensary. Services provided at the new clinic include blood pressure assessment, prenatal care, and nutrition check-ups for children. In addition to donating supplies, TPP helps facilitate the transport of health staff to service the new Ngwenya Clinic. In 2019, district nurses staffed at the temporary clinic reported conducting an average of 30 visits per month for children under five.
