The fruits of the HUMC training- Kitchen at Wadra

“There has never been a kitchen in the compound of the facility and our mothers and sisters suffer in preparing food especially during the rainy/windy seasons” said Mr. Aciya Robert Chairman HUMC, Wadra health center III

“There has never been a kitchen in the compound of the facility and our mothers and sisters suffer in preparing food especially during the rainy/windy seasons” Amid this public outcry, we always felt disempowered because of inadequate resources to help us address the challenge, he added.  Much as the struggle of putting up a kitchen started much earlier before PICOT’s intervention in Wadra,  we did not do much but we learnt a great deal of knowledge and skills from the capacity building on the HUMC roles organized by PICOT in 2016 that helped us execute our mandate very well.  Since then, we were able to plan as HUMC and come with strategies that focused on community Sensitization; involvement and increasing their participation in ensuring quality service delivery in the facility. As result of our meetings with the community, we were able to organize the community to lay bricks, raise the wall and some timber for the kitchen project. Much as it is yet to completion, we appreciate the move and are so hopeful that in three months’ time this project shall be concluded.  With pleasure and deep appreciation, we wish to thank PICOT and the Donors who support them in their endeavors in Maracha district; we hope this empowerment shall continue”
