Volunteer Kenya – HealthCare (Update 2015)
In the months of May, June and July, Volunteer Kenya/ICODEI’s Mobile clinic program continued on – where a total of 600+ patients were seen within the 3 months. With participation of Anna (from the U.S), Anastasia from Russia and Stefano ( a Medical student from the UK ) joined the local Kenya staff. Volunteer Kenya appreciates their time and efforts in joining the local medical staff towards the fight against diseases. This program strives to reach out to the very remote places where medical access is limited and at times – expensive.
The medical team dealt with various cases including Malaria treatment (with the onset of rainy season, Malaria cases are high during this time of the year), Hypertension, URTIs, Diabetic ulcers, Road accident injuries, Intestinal worms and many more.
