The Village Clinic and Maternity at Fajiabougou

Before leaving Fajiabougou, we stopped to see their proud little clinic.  A former Peace Corps worker helped raise the money for this clinic several years ago.  The family and friends of that volunteer continue to help with a bit of support from time to time.

The matron (above) is young and she manages several rooms in the clinic for treating patients and this maternity.  There are two rooms are where the babies are born and the mothers recover.  The birthing room was occupied– a new mother was on a mat on the floor with her newborn, nursing, and this is the recovery room:
