THE Jeffrec.The Mobile Clinic aims to bring much-needed postnatal care to mothers and children within the Jeffreys Bay community. The HMBC, a non-profit organisation, was founded in 2002 due to an overwhelming need in the community for a specialised cli-nic that focus on improving the health of vulnerable and underprivileged mothers and children. “We acknowledge the incredibly important role that the Healthy Mom and Baby Clinic plays within our communities and are honoured to be able to assist in making their services available to the more remote area in Jeffreys Bay,” says Marion Thompson-Green, Economic Development Director for Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm.“Furthermore, the Mobile Clinic is powered by clean, green renewable energy - the fitted solar panels power its fridge and electrical points making this initiative a perfect fit for our funding” The main objectives of the Mobile Clinic are to offer postnatal support, monitoring and continual assessment of the growth, development and needs of the babies and young children in the Jeffreys Bay community, as well as the supply of food and clothing to the mother or caretaker where necessary.The Mobile Clinic was the vision of a Dutch volunteer, who used her own 4x4 vehicle to offer the necessary support in the community. In July 2014, two trusts based in the Netherlands, namely Turn the Tide Trust and Wilde Ganzen, raised funds for the purchase of this new vehicle. With the investment of R200 000 from Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm the Clinic will be able to operate and provide services in the more inaccessible areas. It has also been able to employ a Nurse Assistant, as well as make provision for the employment of a full-time Professional Nurse in the near future. The Mobile Clinic has been fitted out with all necessary requirements, and was ready to start visiting crèches and families for the very first time last week.
