NOVA’s building project in Martineau (a neighborhood of Cavaillon) began in November 2013. It will be conducted in several phases reflecting growing needs, expansion of programs and increasing funding sources as the positive results of our work are published and promoted. NOVA’s initial goals include preventative care and well health programs for pregnant women and their children. We will continue to treat acquired disease on a needs basis but concentrate on health education and community involvement in the promotion of sound health principles and practices.
In October 2013 construction on NOVA’s free-standing two-story Duverseau House was completed. The renovated and expanded building serves as a clinic and a health and hygiene education center. This clinic provides examination, procedure and treatment rooms on the first floor as well as a fully stocked pharmacy and a laboratory facility. The second floor is a volunteer residence whose mission is to host traveling volunteers from NOVA and other charities working in and around Cavaillon.
