Our Tombouctou Héritage health project is committed to working with both allopathic medicine and traditional herbal medicine (see Maison Artemisia Mali). Based in the Banco dispensary 13km from Bamako, it serves 16 villages comprising around 25,000 people. Making it fully operational in these two areas is our ambition.
THE RENOVATION OF THE BANCO HEALTH DISPENSARY
It was not possible to work on this project without considering dedicating some effort to providing healthcare.
In the initial project, we actually envisioned building our own health center. After doing some research, we discovered that a health center near the headquarters of Tombouctou Héritage was falling into ruin. Yet even with a lack of equipment and supplies, every day a team of volunteer nurses treated the inhabitants of the entire region.
