EMI is excited to partner with Ubuntu Clinique in the Cibtoke Province of Burundi on a master plan for this growing health care facility. Ubuntu Clinique opened its doors in 2016 and since then has cared for thousands of people in the region who have been affected by conflict, displacement, hunger, and critical health concerns. With over 100 beds and over 50 staff members, the clinic has undergone growth in the past five years that requires an expansion of their facility to continue successfully serving patients both physically and spiritually. With a 2,500 m.sq. area of newly acquired land for growth, this master plan will help equip Ubuntu Clinique in ministry for many years to come.

Project Scope

Our EMI team will design a phased master plan aligned with the vision and mission of Ubuntu Clinique. A remote needs assessment for the facility is in the process of completion that will help to guide these master planning efforts. This project trip will include a topographic survey of the new property, phased site master plans for the new and existing site locations, and conceptual building designs of two to three of the proposed buildings for the first phase. Additionally, our team will assess the water, wastewater, stormwater, and electrical infrastructure systems at both sites and provide recommendation alternatives for improvement.

This trip is anticipated to be approximately 10 days at the clinic in mid-October. We appreciate your prayerful consideration to join our team in partnership with Ubuntu Clinique.
