The Akwakwaa Clinic in Ghana

Update: the water tank has been installed in June 2008 with funds from the Foundation. Thanks to all those who contributed to the success of this "Micro-donation" project.
This is a request for 1,500 USD to install a water tank, and pipes to provide running water to the Akwakwaa Clinic, in Ghana. The amount of $1,000 has been secured and given to the clinic. It was enough to purchase the water tank and install it but not for the rest of the installation. Therefore at the moment the clinic has water but needs another 500 USD to complete the installations so as to have running water inside the building.
The clinic serves about 200 patients a month. It provides primary health care and has a maternity ward that does from 5 to 10 deliveries a month. The clinic also trains health workers from nearby communities to work in local clinics. The project was started in the year 2000 and has been growing year by year.
The clinic is self-sufficient from patient fees but it needs support for capital improvements.
