GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND GARDENING
Locations: Chamen, Jarrol, Bwiam, Sibanor

BWIAM: WEC has a rural development farm in Bwiam, planting fruit trees like Mango, Cashew, Guava and other tropical trees useful for economic development.
Our aim is to provide a source of income for local schools by supplying them with young trees and the expertise to run their own commercial orchard.
The project acts as both a demonstration farm and a source of young trees for planting to give people both the inspiration and the resource to get started. Instruction is given in soil improvement and care of trees.
Many local people visit the farm giving contact with many different villages and communities.
Bwiam is a large student town with about 3000 people. The farm also has a centre where students and youth frequently meet for fellowship and have access to videos, tapes and literature.

CHAMEN, JARROL, SIBANOR: WEC is involved in medical projects at 5 locations around the country. Our main clinic is located in Sibanor with smaller clinics in Jarrol and Nemakunku. Patients who are too ill to go back to their villages can use the in-patient facilities which are available at the Sibanor clinic. In Brikama a team is working on a project for care in the home as well as supporting the government health centre, and in Chamen two of our nurses are working in a community health project.
