Yotkom project updates

We are very keen to get final approval to open our container of medical equipment donated from the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. We have faced many obstructions and bureaucratic hurdles and are praying for a breakthrough. Getting things done here can be sooo slow .
While waiting on road clearing alongside our land we continue to prepare and put all things in place  with the final plans and approvals , ready for construction to start. Andrew Kilama will be our project manager.
In the Yotkom office we are working to adopt the use of an accounting software program to improve accounting ,transparency and reporting capabilities for the project,
Days for girls initiative continues to grow ,with our nurses planning visits to isolated schools to teach on women's health issues and sexual health. Our Taylor, Rhoda, is working hard in the back office sewing sanitary products for women, some of which are sold in our drug shop, and others donated to schools, with  the assistance of donor funds from Australia.
At the medical clinic patients a young girl receives treatment for shortness of breath associated with an acute asthma attack.
