The United Methodist Church (UMC) has teamed up with the Dindi community in Maramba Pfungwe to provide quality health services and together they have started the expansion of Dindi Clinic to ensure it offers more services.

The development will see the outpatients department, maternity wing, male and female wards and three staff quarters being expanded.

“We decided to partner the local community after having been touched by their plight of travelling long distances to Mtawatawa Hospital for medical services,” said Reverend Henry Chareka of UMC Uzumba Maramba Pfungwe.

The area’s legislator Cde Tichaona Karumazondo and traditional leader Chief Chinyerere welcomed the expansion of Dindi Clinic.

The church also organised a medical outreach programme which saw villagers being treated of various ailments including dental care.

In another development, the UMC has chipped in with US$20 000 to repair 4 teachers’ houses that were destroyed by hailstorm which hit the area in November last year leaving teachers homeless.
