This new clinic offered much needed improvements and to date the clinic offers a range of services, which include: outpatient services, nutrition services, asthma clinic, child welfare clinic, antenatal clinic, cervical/breast cancer screening, laboratory services, TB clinic, dental care, reproductive health and has a well equipped pharmacy.

Baby Care Centre

The Baby Care Centre – christened as Edmund Rice baby care- was established in 2014 as a measure to respond to the high rates of malnutrition among children under five. This was attributed to the fact that most mothers with young children were not working or earning a livelihood because they had no safe place to leave their babies. Single mothers head most of the households in the Mukuru community, so the essence of this baby care is to free up mothers to go and work while they leave their children in a secure, safe and child friendly place.
