Demand for our services is constantly growing, but we are running out of one crucial ingredient - space! We need to move from our crumbling rental building to a purpose-built facility that can meet the needs of the community into the future.
Maranatha Health is excellent at what we do. We make a tangible impact. The community loves and appreciates our services, and as a result we keep growing. However, we currently operate from a less-than-ideal rental facility that is bursting at the seams. We have been creative in transforming the crumbling, run-down Ugandan hotel we are renting into a functioning hospital. But after five years of growth its limitations are clear: inadequate plumbing, temperamental wiring, leaky rooves, flooding during the wet season, and just not enough space.
We have completely run out of space: ward space for our patients, consulting space, office space for administration, training and education space, storage space for medicines and files, and even space for toilets. The demand (from the community and our Ugandan staff) for more and better services grows every day, and the time has come to act.
Based on years of learning, observing, consulting and planning, we have purchased land close to our current rental property on which to construct a new, purpose-built facility. This will provide Maranatha Health with a permanent home from which to treat more patients, expand our services, and run our life-giving community programs.
To make this become a reality, we need to raise over 1 million Australian dollars.
We are currently approaching interested individuals and corporate groups to partner with us in this venture, with detailed architecture plans. Please be in contact with Dr Michael Findlay on email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in partnering with us to build this facility and expand our life-saving work.
