In Kapkemich students and members of the community had to walk miles for medical care.
In 2017 the Virginia Wright Health Clinic opened to the public thanks to a generous donation in honor of Virginia Wright. Along with medical care, the clinic provides Kapkemich and the surrounding community with health education, access to clean water, medical transport assistance, and family planning services.
Due to the pandemic and ongoing fianancial constraints, families in the community often struggle to pay even minimal fees for treatments and drugs. Donations continue to support the work of VWHC, and construction of an expansion space to accommodate more patients. Additional services began in 2019.
