NEW HEALTH CENTER built on Fanning

  Great news! It is with much praise that we can tell you the new Health Center on Fanning has been built after two years of local volunteer labor and supplies donated by a Kona Hawaii resident and developer. The Honolulu based cargo sailing vessel Kwai was very important as well by delivering the supplies. We can also thank the Norwegian Cruise Line company for their generous shipping opportunities to get many of the donated equipment and supplies of ours delivered during some of their cruise sailings to Fanning Island.

   There are still many needs for materials to finalize the exterior and interior of the building. An exterior shower and toilet facility is being planned along with a catchment water storage system, plumbing and electrical are also needed to complete the project.
Currently (January 2011), there is a strong need to gather financial support to purchase and ship window glass and jalousie mechanisms to be sent on the March 2011 cargo sailing of the Kwai. The materials would allow completion of the back and two sides of the Health Centers windows.

  This new facility is such a blessing to the nurse and the people as the three roomed building, now with donated gurneys and exam tables, makes treating people more effective.

Many thanks to all who have helped and donated to make this facility possible to help save lives at Fanning island.

NOTE: If you are a future visitor to the island with supplies to donate, please contact me directly to find out the best method of giving the supplies to a trustworthy representative of the council, clinics or schools.
