Chaang Residents Appeal for Support to Complete Their Clinic
Residents of Chaang, a community in the Nadowli-Kaleo District have complained bitterly over the lack of a clinic in the community.
According to residents of the community, they have started an initiative to construct a structure for their community clinic but has since come to a halt due to lack of funds to complete it.
Speaking to Info Radio at the community, the residents said , the lack of a community clinic in the community poses a serious health risk to members of the community , since they have to travel long distances to access health care due to a surge in their population .
Residents have therefore called on the Nadowli/Kaleo district assembly and the government to support them complete their clinic.
According to members of the Chaang community, only one nurse have been posted to the clinic but there are no medicines allocated to the facility. This, they say, has caused them to move to other communities to seek health services. They said, these communities are quiet distant from their community.
