Africa Foundation, with help from generous donors, completed the construction of a new health facility called Mange Health Post in late 2021, after an extensive period of consultation with the KwaNgwenya community, and district and provincial health authorities . The health post has been open to patients since January 2022 as a base for visiting clinicians. The health post has two consultation rooms, a waiting area, a kitchenette for staff, undercover ambulance area, a dispensary, as well as two sets of enviro loo toilets (one for ladies and one for men) and a borehole.
Africa Foundation is raising funds to construct accommodation for two nurses. The provision of nurse’s accommodation will assist in upgrading the health post to a clinic because having nurses on site will allow the clinic to open Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm. In KwaNgwenya having nurses stay on site means they can attend to medical emergencies, accidents and childbirths that occur after hours. Once the site is upgraded to a clinic, a doctor will be deployed to the site twice a week.
