Community InvestmentsClean water improves health
In the region of Turkey that surrounds our development projects, high acidity and naturally-occurring mineral content create a poor-quality water supply with many elements that are deleterious to health. We are planning a clean-water reservoir for the mine’s use, and plan to build one with far more capacity than the mine needs, so that we can share the water with local villages, to use as clean, healthy drinking and utility water.
A medical clinic for Kirazlı, Turkey
In the village of Kirazlı, where there was no health clinic, we installed a Health Clinic container to provide high-quality health services for local villagers.
Twelve years of medical services at Mulatos
For over ten years we have made the Mulatos mine’s medical clinic available to local communities for routine and critical health care services. The clinic serves as the primary health facility for the Mulatos and Matarachi communities, serving people of all ages. Babies have been born in the clinic, and those with serious conditions have been transported by Medevac to hospitals further away.
In 2015, the clinic provided over 7,000 medical visits to members of the local communities. Alamos also provides medical support through doctors’ visits, medical tests and procedures and the provision of medication to 80% of the population of Mulatos and 20% of Matarachi’s population. The clinic also provides medical education, including visits to homes and schools related to first aid, hygiene, and baby and child care for mothers, in order to improve the community’s general health and hygiene.
