    Solution

  • Impact

    Impact

    The center will be the first of its kind for many miles,people will have access to medical treatment and medication.We have seen the need for this small clinic and have talked to the people about healthcare matters.Most of these people are poor,no transport to hosptal,no money for medication.We have asked for their input in to what they want and their answers were always the same,a medical center.

    Risk

    The biggest risk is lack of funding to build,lack of funds to keep it running.But with hard work and determination we will bring about this building project.The village of Beshlaw is keen to help itself,we already have volunters willing to learn first aid,Doctors have given us their support with the offer of manning the clinic on a rota basis.Nurses from the UK offering their services.So with all this support it will succeed.

    Reporting

    Help in Egypt has always prided itself on its communication skills,we know how important it is to keep the donors informed,we will do this by e mails,letters,posting information on our website helpinegypt.com and other social sites.Communication is crucial if you want support and funding.
