On behalf of its joint venture FAR partnered with UK Jarra Association (UKJA) to undertake the work, which will help the hospital better meet its objective to handle up to 100 deliveries per month.
The company was responsible for the construction of the delivery ward extension, repair and refurbishment of the existing delivery ward and the provision and fitting for the expanded ward.
FAR managing director Cath Norma said: “We would like to thank UK Jarra Association, the contractors who completed the works and all those involved in the successful completion of this project.
“We greatly appreciate the support of the Ministry of Petroleum of Energy and the Ministry of Health, we are thrilled to play a small role in maternal and baby health care in The Gambia.”
UKJA was responsible for sourcing the medical equipment for the expanded ward including medicine storage facilities such as a drug refrigerator, sterilisation machines, new beds and privacy screening.
