Housing and hospital in Ndirande slum

Malabada hospital

In 2005, preparations were made to build a hospital with five houses in the Ndirande slum. In 2008, a pediatric ward and five additional staff houses were added. Malabada provides a number of services. The government pays for the care of 10,000 patients. These patients consist of pregnant women (7,000) and children (3,000) under the age of 5. The children get the vaccination program and the pregnant women get their checks. The people are also checked for AIDS, in addition people are treated at the Malabada hospital and if they have to, the patients are admitted. Currently it is not a government hospital and not all treatments are funded. Negotiations are underway to have the care fully reimbursed by the government or the Synod of the area. Another challenge is modern equipment such as: CT scans in order to offer proper diagnoses and treatments. If all negotiations fail, another use for the children's ward of the hospital can be considered. This could be a shelter for disabled children, an orphanage or a school for deaf and dumb children.
