Identified by Marcelline and Bertain as the biggest need for the community on south Idjwi,  Mozzo committed it’s C2C Fund contributions for 2020 and 2021 to building the islands first ever maternity and paediatric clinic.

January 2020 saw the start of the clinic build and as part of the project, running water has been established for the first time on Idjwi – the community’s first safe water supply.

In Feb '20 Grant and Kim from Mozzo visited Idjwi Island to witness the tremendous build progress for themselves, learn about and from the community and visit the farms and homes of some of the RWH Cooperative members. By this point, the elevations for the women’s ward, delivery room, post-natal ward, pharmacy and lab as well as the men's ward (the clinic will also help in the treatment of disease for all the community) were already well underway.

Despite the most challenging year for so many, we were able to celebrate the opening of the clinic in December 2020. Built and operating entirely with investment from our C2C Fund™ (at a total cost of £43,450 to date, click here for breakdown) it was an honour to join Rebuild Women's Hope and the local community for the opening ceremony and witness first hand the impact the clinic is already having for the people of Idjwi.

Employing 14 members of staff, in the last half of December alone the clinic treated 44 people, including 28 pregnant women and 12 children with malaria. We've welcomed 6 babies, with 8 more arriving since then! More updates will follow but a huge thank you to all our Mozzo community, every purchase of Mozzo Coffee truly enables a deeper positive impact in the world.
