    I want to congratulate you on this remarkable achievement! When I first heard about PMC, I thought it would be a small clinic, but in reality, we saw a state-of-the-art medical centre which was fantastic, and it was all done by contributions from the community. It has been a great way to engage the community and it really has been a great team effort.
