Dr. ABD, just returned from studies in Malawi, was displaced from Masanga in 1996 by the brutal civil war. He rented a 8 bedroom house for the family in Makeni.
Things became very difficult for dr ABD, leprosy patients and for the staff from Masanga.
Therefore ABD converted two rooms and started consultations to earn a living and to help patients and staff.
His consultations became more popular and he had to rent a new building.
The birth of City Garden Clinic.
That building ‘opposite fullah mosk’, also became too small. Therefore dr ABD decided to build his own clinic.
