Madagascar School Project's doctors receive donated medications.
With the nearest doctor 45 minutes away on foot, we realized early on that we needed a doctor to support our students and villagers.
We had a small medical clinic and employed a doctor who lived and worked at the school during the week. He treated everyone, whether or not they could pay for his services. Our waiting room was often full, especially in winter when pneumonia is common.
Now we have built a large facility and will soon have a doctor seven days a week and a part-time dentist. We thank our Canadian donors who provided scholarships for two young men to become doctors. Now they give back by practicing in our clinic.
