Possible Chandika Health Clinic's story
Chandika Health Clinic provides high-quality, low-cost healthcare for 1,747 people in rural Nepal. Their facility includes a pharmacy and outpatient facility, and they are currently constructing a birthing center. Chandika patient Bhajan is expecting her second child in December and hopes to give birth at the clinic. “When I had my first child, I started making clothes for her from the minute I found out, but I have been busy with my little girl while pregnant with this one,” she admits. Bhajan learned about the hospital's Antenatal Care Program from her community health work, also named Bhajan, pictured above in the bright blue sari.
