Sapteshwor Health Post and Birthing Center

Nepal

Construction started on the Sapteshwor Health Post and Birthing Center in fall 2017; the anticipated date of completion is July 2018. The existing heath post was damaged by the 2015 earthquake and currently unsafe for use. Land for the new health post has been donated by four residents of Sapteshwor and the community has made a commitment to contribute at least 20% of the cost.

As of July 2018 the new building has been roofed (see picture below.) The wiring work has completed, all but one room has been plastered and the tiling work is well under way.
