The new date for the dedication ceremony for the Maternal/Child Health Center is June 17th. Not surprisingly, it is difficult to get a large group of dignitaries in one place, especially far upcountry. Fingers crossed that the stars will align and the facility can open.
Housing construction is essentially competed for the year, with some indoor plastering still happening. Nearly 40 houses were built, and several villagers were inspired to start houses on their own, requesting assistance only with nails and timber.
The school addition was postponed due to the heavy activity on the Health Center and housing, but Fodei has decided to make composite blocks using mud mixed with a little cement, so they can be stored and possibly used during the rainy season.
Much happening! This is a very exciting time for the village and the chiefdom.
