Garden project helps home based care patients

Posted Dec 02 2008 3:07am


Our five student nurses will be leaving Nata clinic at weeks end. They wanted to show off their third project that was also quite successful. They planted a garden and grew tomatos, rape (a type of spinach) and maize. They donated the vegetables to the home based care patients. These are patients that usually have AIDS and are too sick to leave the house. Since the roll out of the anti-retroviral program the number of patients receiving home based care has declined. There are currently only about 20 patients receiving home based care. Before the arv rollout that number was in the hundreds. We'd like to say goodbye to our students and wish them every success in their careers.  We enjoyed having you in Nata these past few months.  Good job ladies.
