‘Hoe kijkt coördinator Carlos Sanchez terug op het project?’

De partner vertelt... van 12 november 2019 door Carlos Sanchez

Elk jaar vragen we onze partner hoe het project is gegaan en welke lessen de partner heeft geleerd.

Context and summary

Describe the original plan/idea for the project. Has the project been executed as planned?
For more than 50 years more than 8 communities in the area of Cuevas have received medical attention in a small clinic, where in three rooms it worked: the pharmacy, doctor's office, doctor's house, delivery room and information room. This small construction over the years and despite the effort of the community for maintenance deteriorated and the space was very small, in rainy weather they could not use the place because it drank a lot of water through the ceiling and walls. A new place was necessary for people to receive a better greeting and for people working in the center to work better and cleaner.

Give a (short) general description of the implementation of the project.

Now a new building is being built, with space for pharmacy, two doctors' offices, a nursing room, two rooms for hospitalization, a surgery room and deliveries and an ambulance garage.

How do you look back on the following topics? How was it arranged, what went well, what could be done better?


Buildings worked on
The construction is one of the largest we have had with World Servants, but the group did a wonderful job, despite the rains that prevented us from working some days, the participants and leaders decided to work more hours and more days than planned, it was Very inspiring to see their commitment. Very good work.

Cooperation and involvement

Leadership team World Servants
Great leader Team! From the first day they understood that we had to be flexible, and the experience of Maaike leader of the group was fundamental so that everything could be done in a very good way, excelent leaders group!

Local leaders / key persons
The community leader Mr. Herculiano Gutierrez worked many hours and with a lot of commitment to carry out this project, his support was very good, and we were able to witness his commitment to his community, very good work.

The community often brought fruits for the group, and when we asked for their time to meet and share with the group we always had almost the entire community to play, eat or have fun with the group.

They participated in all the activities that were requested to be with the group.

(Local) authorities
The activities with the community were also coordinated with the Director of Human Development of the City Hall of Samaipata, Lic. Balvina
