On Friday last week CAUSE Project handed over three public space improvement for Vura, Mataniko Pikinini and Mbokona clinics.
Speaking during the simple handing over ceremony Honiara City Council Health Director Dr. Chris Becha said the improvement is a landmark for these clinics and the surrounding communities.
Dr Becha said: “Sometimes we embark on bigger projects and forget about small projects that really touch the lives of people. Such projects are vital for the accessibility of patients and those who work in these clinics.”
Dr. Becha thanked CAUSE Project, World Bank and those who built the infrastructures.
Councillor for Vura ward Reginald Ngati in his remarks acknowledged the support of the project to the clinics and the people and calls on residents of Vura ward to do cleaning up around their surroundings and not to wait all the time for authorities to do for them.
Ngati said: “Let us be responsible health is everybody’s business and we must take action to clean our surroundings rather than relying on authorities all the time.”
Meanwhile CAUSE Project is happy to help out in COVID related issues in terms of accessing health facilities like hand washing stations being installed at the clinics and schools in and around Honiara.
The handing over ceremonies was witnessed by the Mayor of Honiara City Council Councillor Eddie Siapu and invited guests.
CAUSE Project is government project implemented by Honiara City Council and the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and supported by the World Bank.
