Since 1996, DAFA has funded a number of community-based development projects. Let us tell your briefly about 2 of these projects, namely St. Dominic’s Missionary Hospital and Yengwe Primary school.
st. dominic's missionary hospital
One of DAFA’s key priorities is to provide medical aid and support to the sick, and provide hospice care for the terminally ill. Located 18km from the nearest town, Ndola, St. Dominic’s Missionary hospital caters to a surrounding population of 35,000. Previously a small clinic built on the site of an old beer hall, St. Dominic’s has now achieved fully-functioning status and is one of the projects we at DAFA are most proud of.
The 125-bed hospital facility offers standard health care procedures, surgical and outpatient facilities, AIDS and Tuberculosis laboratories, dentistry services, vaccinations and even a designated pharmacy. Since 2016, DAFA has funded the construction of significant residential facilities for the medical staff working at the hospital and St. Dominic's has treated 15,000 outpatients in the first three months of 2018. Please see below for an in-depth case study of this project.
