What They Need

The Shirazi medical clinic still needs:
- roofing
- tarring
- doors and windows
- flooring

The predicted cost of all of this is about US$3,000.

The construction of the Shirazi Medical Clinic has so far been funded 100% by previous SIT Kenya: Health and Community Development students. And, thus, there will not be any more construction until the contractor and construction crew receive more money. Under Kenya's new 2010 constitution, "43. (1) Every person has the right — (a) to the highest attainable standard of health, which includes the right to health care services, including reproductive health care..." and thus the federal government has told its constituents that if communities build their own clinics they will provide funding for medicine and a doctor's and/or nurses' salaries.
