Together with these hardworking staff and volunteers, they've helped develop a hospital which now has three doctors, have provided water and sanitation to in excess of 40,000 people, have provided nutritional support to hundreds of malnourished babies and toddlers, established a school which serves over 325 children and begun to develop a micro-enterprise initiative mostly for women who receive small loans for their businesses.
