Administration Center is off to a great start!

Just a few months ago, the construction of the Administration Center began. The Center will not only provide a better work environment for the administration staff but will also provide a facility for job training and a computer lab. In the picture below, the Masons are applying the coating on the ceiling, interior, and exterior walls. Soon a plumber and electrician will complete their work to lead to the completion of the first floor.

The Administration Center will have a court yard where the doors to all of the offices can remain open for the workday.

X-ray Equipment is Operational!

New medical technology is operational at Pwoje Espwa Sud. ? Hurray!

During the planning stages for Pwoje Espwa Sud’s new medical clinic, it was our dream to be able to include modern technology. Generous donors made this dream come true with contributions to cover the cost of digital X-ray and ultrasound machines.

Arnie Teppo, an echo technician from Vancouver, WA, and Denise Hinatsu, an x-ray technician from Vancouver island, Canada, along with Dr. Cynthia DeSoi, Espwa’s own Medical Director, worked for more than two years to plan, choose, and implement this project. Our medical staff is being trained, so that they can take full advantage of these important diagnostic tools. This technology will also be beneficial to our visiting medical teams.

Thanks to all who helped with each step along the way!
