The Community of Lougouana in the Region of Koutiala - Sikasso (Republic of Mali) has 10,000 inhabitants scattered across its compound of7 villages and distant hamlets.
The community faces strong access issues to its health care facilities located in the Capital Village of Léléni as well as specialized health care services outside the community because of distance, bad road conditions and lack of medical vehicle.
The Rotary Clubs of Teton Valley (USA) and Bamako Koulouba (Mali) have joined their effort in a District Grant donation of a Motoambulance which will facilitate:
- affordable medical transport;
- better emergency transport handling like difficult pregnancies and birth deliveries;
- Patient transport from distant hamlets and villages to the community health care facilities;
- Patient transport from the community health care facilities to specialized ones: the clinic of Karangasso and the regional hospital of Koutiala.
