Jacob’s Well is helping to construct a clinic in the West of Burkina in a town called Banfora. The site was purchased in 2001 by a local NGO with a view of treating vulnerable, disadvantaged marginalized and disabled people who otherwise would have no access to health-care. Up until now, they have been renting private rooms in the town to carry out treatments as they have not had money to build a proper medical facility. When completed, the clinic will treat hundreds of poor people who would otherwise get no help, with a special focus on people with disabilities.
Jacob’s Well has supported this project for several years by supplying them with medicines and other medical products.
