Since 2007, MAP has been running the dispensary in Mendida, a village 130 km from the capital, in the Oromiya region. Every day, the dispensary welcomes the most vulnerable families in the village and offers medical care to around 100 malnourished women, children and babies. During the first wave of Covid-19, the dispensary team was responsible for delivering meals, food baskets and medicines to families, to avoid any risk of the virus spreading.
Following a field mission in May 2023, an additional classroom at the Mendida elementary school, located within the center’s grounds, is being built to accommodate an additional 40 pupils, for a total of 288 students.
