Short description: The village of Varnita is located on the right bank of the Nistru River, 69 km away from Chisinau in the South-East part of Moldova.  The population of the village is 5,150 persons(2,190 women, 1,962 men, and 998 children).The Health Centre collaborates with medical institutions from Bender.

Beneficiaries: over 8000 people from Varnita, Bender, Tiraspol, Slobozia (TN region)

Results: At the beginning of 2013, Varnita village benefited by financial support of the Government for construction of new building of community Health Centre. Due to the lack of resources for equipment and furniture, a project proposal was submitted by LPA to SCBM Programme in January 2013, asking support for furnishing and equipping the Health Centre. Taking into consideration that this Centre was planned to provide healthcare assistance for people from both banks of the Nistru river, thus holding a significant confidence building potential, the project proposal was approved for funding by the SCBM Programme Board.
