Dananai Care Centre

Murambinda community growth pointDananai Home Based Care Centre is the community outreach programme based at the hospital. The centre provides

– care to the terminally ill;

– community support to people living with HIV/AIDS;

– education via schools, community groups and peer educator work; and

– agricultural assistance

Often a family’s savings are wiped out by the cost of a parent’s funeral. The children may then be unable to buy seed to plant for the next year’s harvest and destitution looms. Giving seed to such families can provide nutritional self-sufficiency and encourages self-reliance. Needy families are identified through Dananai’s community outreach programme.
