How much does it really cost to build a medical center in Nigeria?

Updated: Aug 26, 2020

AIHWA (American Initiative for Health & Wellness in Africa) has been in pursuit of building the first integrated medical clinic, called Hope Center, in Africa. The past few years, all fundraising and donations have been funneled to this project in hopes of having it complete by 2021. But how much does all of this really cost? Where are we in terms of funding? And what is the breakdown?

Below, we have created a chart illustrating just how much Hope Center costs (in USD). AIHWA has decided to be completely transparent in needed funding in hopes that it will inspire those to continue to give. The U.S. dollar goes such a long way in Africa, and thanks to our generous donors, our water factory is complete and the construction for our medical clinic has began.


AIHWA Hope Center Construction Costs


As mentioned and illustrated above, a few of our projects have been fully funded and are in the process of completion as we read this. This includes AIHWAVITA, our fully functioning bottled water factory. This water factory is providing jobs to locals and slowly creating a sustainable profit that will be used to help fund Hope Center. You can read more about AIHWAVITA by clicking here.

Despite this progress, we still have a ways to go in order to make Hope Center a fully functioning integrated medical clinic.

To break it down, we are still in need of the following funds:

  • Landscaping: $1,425

  • Medical Clinic: $87,500

  • Diagnostics Center: $320,000

  • Equipment for Diagnostics Center: $640,000

  • Cold room $29,000

  • Rest House $490,000

*Due to it being the largest chunk of our overall cost, medical equipment that can be donated AND shipped to Hope Center is highly sought for and encouraged.

It is also important to note that the 2020 Cares Act allows for all donations to be up to 100% tax deductible.

If you would like to donate to AIHWA, we have a few options for you. You can join our monthly give program, or give a one-time donation. Both are tax deductible and will go straight to our Hope Center project. In order to give, you can use the DONATE button in the upper right-hand corner, or click here.
