Due to the downturn in the Global economy, the Nutrition Centre's funding is ceasing at the end of the year and unless alternative funding is sourced they will have to close. This will mean that the nearest access to a doctor will be more than 100 miles away. The overall annual budget for centres running costs is $60,168; of which $20,268 is allocated to providing the services of the doctor and medicines, which is free of charge to the local community.
