At the conclusion of our three year partnership agreement with Navajeevana Health Centre, MAI Trustees have decided not to renew for another term. Our partnership had been created to enable the Centre to produce increased income so as to conduct more outreach clinics in the poorest areas of Sri Lanka and to move towards self-sustainability.
Sadly, few outreach clinics have been possible in those years and there are no clear plans for future clinics in NHC’s latest Business Plan. Moreover, while our support was to enable NHC to appoint more doctors and so increase income, it has never been possible to appoint the full staff compliment during the last three years.
As a result, the Partnership Agreement will not be renewed. The Board and staff of MAI continue to pray for our friends in NHC and trust that they will deliver increasingly robust plans to enable their dreams to be realised.
