Sincro are proud supporters of this Rotary Club event which raises substantial funds for some excellent local community based causes.Rotary in Tanzania recently partnered with CCBRT (Community based Rehabilitation ) Hospital to build a income generating private clinic signifying an important step in transforming CCBRT from a donor dependant organisation to a social enterprise. The new private clinic will tap in a growing demand for quality healthcare from the fast expanding middle class in Tanzania. The clinic’s profit will be invested in the Disability Hospital, improving CCBRT’s overall sustainability.
Currently all disability treatments at the hospital is dependent on grants which are difficult to come by. By constructing and equipping a new facility, CCBRT will increase its capacity to see patients paying for private care and overall profit. In turn, the Private Clinic will cross-subsidize services provided by CCBRT Disability Hospital, ensuring that patients can access affordable high quality health care.
For every two patients seeking care at the Private Clinic, one patient will receive affordable quality health care at the Disability Hospital.
Annually at full capacity, the Private Clinic will generate $2,900,000 profit to invest in the Disability Hospital and will reduce its reliance on donors.
