$1.6m PCDF funding for Ote clinic worth it


MORE than 2,000 rural dwellers within Roone and surrounding communities in ward 22 of Small Malaita are benefiting from the newly built Ote rural health clinic.

The clinic was built by Malaita provincial government with a PCDF funding $1.6 million under the current leadership of MPA for ward 22, Martin Mae.

Speaking to SunAuki, the MPA said the clinic project has completed and with the need for its service, it began services in January this year.

He said prior to Ote clinic, people within Ote area were served by Tawaro and Sa’a rural health clinics which are both far away from Ote.

Saying that resulted in health challenges encounter on areas such as transportation, weather, finances and others that put health a gasping service for them.

Mae said with the recent operation of Ote clinic, the challenges have gone while health service is served within their proximity.

He said his people are grateful for the national government through Ministry of Provincial Government (MPGIS) and MPG for the project and the health benefit it has on them.

“The $1.6 million clinic project has worth it with both its implementation and importantly the service it will provide to my people and generations to come,” Mae said. 

Meanwhile, the MPA said that since the completion of the project, it is yet to hand over to the communities and they behind it.

He said his communities are planning the handing over of the clinic project soon to which they will officially receive it from the national government.

The MPA thanked the national government through MPGIS, the PCDF programme and MPG for the project as its service to his people.
