BENEFITING: Tiba Foundation

EVENT DATE: Jan 06, 2014

David Mai

THE STORY:

The Tiba Foundation supports efforts to provide sustainable healthcare to people in rural Kenya. They do this through a model of enabling community members to care for themsemselves and improve their quality of life, educating them on such issues as malaria and HIV prevention. They have multiple local clinics, running year round, and are developing a women and children's hospital in Western Kenya to treat the people of Siaya district.

In 2012, David and Sarah Mai traveled with Matibabu organization, the Kenyan partner of the Tiba foundation, on a two-week surgical mission. They provided comprehensive anesthesia and postoperative care to a variety of patients and surgical procedures. Moreover, a part of the goal of these surgical missions is to have a cross-cultural education with local health care providers on how to provide better quality care though various methods of delivery while gaining insight on how anesthesia and nursing care is provided in third world countries.

In January of 2014, David and Sarah plan to return to Western Kenya to again provide anesthesia and post operative nursing care, teach local providers about safe and effective care, while taking back invaluable perspective on treatment modalities adopted there. 

Returning to the same hospital and region, as they did two years ago, will also allow David and Sarah to assess and improve the effect of their teaching. This will enable local healthcare providers to continue to improve processes in a sustainable manner. This surgical trip will last for two weeks and will be in conjunction with surgeons, anesthetists, anesthesiologists, and nurses from around the country adding to the enriching experience of philanthropy and education. All contributions are tax deductible and will go directly toward Sarah and David's room and board while on the surgical trip. All contributions beyond the target will go directly to the Tiba Foundation that will fund local clinics and provide continued medicines and care in rural Kenya.
