Heart of Mary Health Centre receives new Mobile Health Clinic

The provision of basic health services by the Heart of Mary Health Centre in Alexishafen to the Madang, Sumkar and North Coast Local Level Governments hinterland populations will be vastly improved thanks to the donation of a Mobile Health Clinic from Digicel PNG Foundation. The Mobile Health Clinic (MHC), a fully kitted ambulance, was officially handed over to the Heart of Mary Health Centre on Wednesday 7th October during a colourful launch ceremony held at the Health Centre in Madang. The health center will use the MHC to conduct monthly outreach clinics to service the center’s catchment area population of over 22,000 people. “The rural outreach clinics conducted by Heart of Mary Health Centre are an important service to the people of Madang Province. This new MHC will allow us to bring services to the doorstep of our rural people and we will be able to address and achieve the reduction of maternal mortality and infant mortality rates, treat illnesses and give more awareness about healthy nutrition, family planning and sexually transmitted illnesses. We are so grateful to Digicel PNG Foundation for recognizing our need and providing this assistance,” said Charlie Tagau, Board Chairman of the Heart of Mary Health Centre. Digicel PNG Foundation funded the Mobile Health Clinic at a cost of K180,000 which is the discounted price Ela Motors offers as part of their support to the work of the Foundation and organizations which provide much needed health services to Papua New Guinea’s rural population.
