Clara dispensary is a small health facility located in Uru village – Moshi Rural district – Kilimanjaro Region, Tanzania. This project started in 2018 by Mama Faraji who is also a Founder of Tuleeni Orphans Home. The project buildings weresponsored by Lions Club in Belgium through Mr. Günter Constandt.
This project concept came, after assessing the needs of medical help in the village where most of the people cannot afford paying for medical treatment. After interviewing local community members and assessing the existing facilities within the immediate area, it became apparent that there was a great need of medical facilities that can be more easily accessible. It was found that many individuals within this area do not attend their medical needs, despite some people being seriously ill. The main challenge is distance and medical treatment costs. This is particularly an issue for those who may have ongoing medical conditions that require frequent medical attention, such as weekly visits.
Our main services are Health care seminars, Doctor consultations, Preliminary measurements such as blood pressure (BP) and weight, Laboratory tests (STD’s, Malaria, Diabetes, Gastrointestinal diseases etc.), Medical services (Pharmacy), Medical injection, Cleaning wounds and minor surgery. The project focus in healthcare treatment and prevention.
