Khwai Guest House

Project #1

The Medical Help Project is a mobile clinic which works with the general hospital in Maun (Letsholathebe) to come on a monthly basis to check on the health of community members, as well as, staff members. Most of the community cannot afford to travel or are too old, or too sick to travel the six hour round trip to the hospital every month to receive their I.E BP medications. This project helps the community in a huge way.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 18, 2019

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
