Project Progress

Sorry for the absence but things have been busy! Things are starting to look pretty good around here. The Cas de Santé pavilion structure is very near complete. And mosquito screens have been mounted just in time for the very worst of the mosquitoes, which are eating me alive!

We went from this:

To this:

And have finally arrived here!




These screens are installed on the windows of the infirmary at the clinic and the maternity, screen doors were also put in. This time of year mosquitoes are rampant making malaria rates sky-rocket. Since the parasite causing malaria is passed from one person (already demonstrating malarial symptoms) to another, these screens will prevent those with malaria from infecting others and from mosquitoes from entering the clinic.


More to come as the we continue along.

Thank you again for all the support!





  1. WOW! This is one BIG step and a lasting one at that! You are really something. Hope the pavilion/clinic treats many women for many years to come.
    Congratulations. Much Love, Aunt Joan

  2. Wow, Hayley. What a project and what success in bringing everyone together to make it happen. Truly a legacy gift to your community. Fun to read about it knowing your mom is headed your way today. She will surely bring home lots of photos to share. Have fun together! Let us know how her French goes–she’s worked hard to be ready to chat it up. Love you. gena

  3. So glad and proud to be here to see the clinic completed and filled!!!!!! with women and their babies. I was able to hold many of them (and have them pee on me) to weigh them and measure their little arms to check for malnutrition. Luckily, few are malnourished or ill and I would like to think you had something to do with that. What a wonderful place for the women to wait and also to get information. The day I was there, they were learning about vaccinations and how important it is to get them. You (and all those who helped you with this project) will be a lasting legend in this community for many generations.

    Merci pour tu service and je t”aime,
