Our winter equipment, at the Pende Clinic, such as heaters and a bigger stove have truly made a huge difference for patients and menpas (women healthcare providers). Previously menpas and patients have to add layers and layers of clothes to keep themselves warm without any sort of heating facility, but still they continue working tirelessly. Now that their rooms are warm and comfortable, they are happy and grateful.
