Why is it Village s dispensary? That is not correct grammar is English.

I reported it. I assume it's a beta thing.

it is correct grammar, it is just not a whole sentence. There is an apostrophe in the example.

Village dispensary should be accepted. I have reported this.

I'm not quite sure what this is...is it the same thing as a pharmacy?

In Kenya, a dispensary is a small outpatient health facility, usually managed by a registered nurse. It provides the most basic primary healthcare services to rural communities, e.g. childhood immunization, family planning, wound dressing and management of common ailments like colds, diarrhea and simple malaria. The nurses report to the nursing officer at the health center, where they refer patients with complicated diseases to be managed by clinical officers.

I assume it is much the same in Tanzania, although the bureaucratic structure could well be different.
