Our Community



Methodist Mission Agricultural Program


The Methodist Mission Agricultural Programme (MMAP) is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) of Methodist Church The Gambia. Our strategy focuses is on the mitigation of Climate Change by planting trees of high canopy for income generation in the community, through the sale of cashew nuts and mangoes.


We are now engaged in self-help micro projects such as a Processing Center, Bantang-Bantabaa Restaurant, a Well-Digging programme and the Methodist Farm and Tree Nursery. With these small units we finance other activities within the organization.



Methodist Medical Work


The medical work of the Methodist Church The Gambia continues to yield fruits. The greater part of the medical work continues in Marakissa, Makumbaya and Jiboroh Clinics.


OBJECTIVES


The objectives of the Connexional Medical Board are as follows:


-   To provide quality healthcare for clients in the areas of Reproductive Health (including maternal and child
    care), general adult outpatient care, school healthcare as well as adult health services;

-   To provide dental services;

-   To create a productive environment for effective patient care;

-   To promote staff development; and

-   To build strong relationships with our communities, donors, and well-wishers.


CLINICAL SERVICES


The Church continues to upgrade the healthcare needs of the people of Kombo Western Circuit with health facilities at the Methodist Dental Clinic in Brikama, Marakissa, Jiboroh and Makumbaya Clinics. The clinic services include health education, nutritional assessment and counselling (weighing), screening of patients (triage) antenatal care, child healthcare, immunisation against killer diseases, dispensing of medicines, dressing wounds and follow-up of all risk patients and referrals.


The Methodist Church Medical Work continues to cover Makumbaya on Wednesdays, Jiboroh on Thursdays and Marakissa on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. As soon as the Malnutrition Unit starts to function, it will be offering services throughout the week.


DRUGS


Drugs are in regular supply mainly from philanthropic church groups in the UK, The Gambia Government and members of Methodist Church The Gambia. Students of Gambia Methodist Academy donated drug items to the medical work of the Methodist Church recently. They are highly commended for their noble gesture.


The Ministry of Health, The Gambia, provides on a monthly basis, immunisation drugs and also supplies the Methodist Church Medical Work malaria drugs, as and when they are requested for.


REFURBISHMENT


The refurbished Jiboroh Clinic by Gambia Experience and the Solar System at the Dental Clinic were dedicated on Saturday 23rd November 2013.
