Mobile Medical Super Clinics

Smile of a Child and Friend Ships are coordinating efforts to build 36 new Mobile Medical Super Clinics some of which will be placed at TBN facilities in Africa, Central America and the Caribbean.  There are two clinics in each of the eighteen 20 foot clinic containers.

 

These clinics will be used to provide free of charge medical treatment for impoverished people.

Interior of a typical Super Clinic....The Super Clinics are well equipped, portable sea containers that are easily transportable aboard Friend Ships vessels or commercial ships.  Once in a country, they can be moved by truck to any location needed. 

 

The Super Clinic provides a temperature controlled, dust free, sterile environment that creates a secure and discreet atmosphere for treating patients.  The air conditioning helps medical staff to stay fresh and alert on long hot days in tropical climates.   It allows the patients to be as comfortable as possible while receiving treatment.

 

All equipment, supplies and medicine are housed within the clinic for quick access that allows medical providers to be effective and efficient with their time.
