Around three times a year we invite a team of 14 international doctors, osteopaths and nurses to come to Kenya for two weeks and volunteer in our mobile medical clinic. The international team is joined by Kenyan doctors, nurses and translating students and together we are 30 dedicated humanitarians.
During these expeditions we travel to various places within Kenya, depending on the need of the population. Currently the medical camps are held in Nairobi, Makindu, Amboseli, Narok, Mau Forest, Bomet and Pokot. The team stops at a different location each day. Upon arrival they set up a make shift medical clinic; be it in a school building or under a huge tree in a rural setting. On average 300 patients are treated absolutely free of charge each day. This includes free consultation, diagnostic tests, medications and any other treatment that can be administered on the day from minor surgical procedures to Osteopathic adjustment.
Our mobile lab is able to conduct full urinalysis, malaria tests, pregnancy tests, blood sugar tests as well as cervical pap smear testing for cervical cancer.
Our fully stocked mobile pharmacy is able to cater for the most common conditions encountered such as diahorreal diseases, infections, malaria, iron supplements for pregnant women as well as life supporting minerals for sick babies.
A two week medical camp treats an approximate 3000 women and children absolutely free of charge. Annually, that’s 9000 women and children, who lack the money for healthcare that we are able to help. Furthermore, waiting patients are given health talks on preventing illness and how best to provide care and nutrition for their young ailing children.
