Medical Clinic

A small medical clinic was established in the early 2000’s to provide basic care to children in the community. 


But the need is great, and a new modern medical clinic is being built and scheduled to open in 2024.  It will provide comprehensive medical support to orphans and other vulnerable children as well as needy community members. 

​20 years of caring for the children

The "old one-room clinic" saw 4,602 visits, and it is expected that the impact and reach of the new clinic will be immeasurable in a country where health care is nearly non-existent.​​

HCOC Nurse Beauty has provided care since the founding of HCOC.  The need has been great due to the AIDS epidemic and life in a rural area.  

UNICEF had provided ongoing help with supplies vaccines, medical supplies and antiretroviral HIV treatments. As a result, only 3 orphans under HCOC care have been lost to AIDS since 2008.

New Clinic 2024

​ In 2017 plans to build a new clinic were initiated.  ZMP has provided 100% of the funding for this new clinic from grants from ZMP churches, and individual donations, which have totaled over $100,000. 

The design was developed and donated by a Denver area architect who specializes in medical buildings.  

The new clinic is a one-story brick building with private rooms, toilet facilities, secure drug storage, a sheltered waiting area and a center courtyard.  A garden has been started in the courtyard.

With the opening of the new clinic in 2024, many more in the area can be served.   Increased staffing will be needed, and efforts are underway to finalize the funding and acquire the staff.

Monica M. is HCOC’s amazing Village Caregiver for the Jonga Village. Here we find three siblings under the supervision of Monica, two males and one female all under the age of 9, all born with HIV.  The Siblings lost their mother at a very young and tender age to HIV and left in the care of their father, who is also chronically ill with HIV. Although he does his best to try and care for his children by gold panning for family survival, it’s very difficult.

Monica helps siblings remember to take their antiretroviral treatments which is critical for their survival.  She also distributes monthly food supplies. In the future HCOC hopes to provide repairs and renovations to their house and also construct a freestanding outhouse.
