Update: 8:42PM WITH THE goal of making more medical services at home, villagers of Namukalau in Dogotuki, Macuata have began the work of building their own dispensary.
The villagers started their fundraising this week so minor treatment they travel by boat an hour to get at the Nayaroyaro settlement health centre can be performed by their own village nurse.
Village elder, Maria Elena said Namukalau Day which raised $1400 this week was primarily held to build and equip the physical structure.
“It’s a fantastic idea to have our own dispensary and we just need the funds to buy some building materials,” she said.
“We need this because we have had to make some trips with patients that could have been treated here.”
