Lomé’s Amoutiévé district will soon have a new clinic which construction is fully funded by the U.S.Department of Defense Humanitarian Assistance Program. Ambassador Whitehead, Togbui Adjallé the 6th, and Minister Sémodji attended the ceremonial groundbreaking on the former clinic’s site on May 26. The ambassador expressed his pride to contribute to improving Togo population’s  health condition and provided details about the future building: “This clinic will be a wonderful resource for a community which has been suffering from the lack of such facility for long. It will include offices, examination rooms, delivery rooms, three recovery rooms, a minor surgery, and drug store.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will supervise the construction, with part of a 2014 total budget of $14 million, meant for the construction of several schools, clinics and a laboratory in Togo.
