SOS!!! We need medicines and supplies for dental and medical outreach!
We at GHP are burdeded by the fact that people are dying from easily preventable and treatable diseases in rural Kenya. The lack of access to services is alarming! A lot of the problems are poverty related. Due to the lack of local available resources i.e. when a person does not have a few shillings to get on a bus to the nearest hospital, but instead succumbs to the worsening disease, which in many cases could have been successfully treated or even prevented. This is not OK with us!
This is what we do:
In collaboration with our Kenyan colleagues, GHP once again conducted its annual mobile medical camps in rural Kenya last September, as it has done annually since 2008. Data was collected pertaining to the illnesses diagnosed and treated as well as information on the demographics. The total of 523 patients received treatment over a two day period. It sure was a busy time for all involved!
We also facilitated a Health Education Seminar for the community at the new multipurpose health and education center on our sister organization's (OWI - Outreach to the World, Inc.) compound. The topics included the launching of the WASH training ( water, sanitation, hygiene), first aid ( choking, fainting), brain and heart health and culminating in the fun demonstration on “Laughter is the best medicine”.
This is our goal:
Our goal is to start twice monthly clinical services and health education seminars in early 2018 at a small clinic/dispensary on the OWI compound in Kiminini. These services will be supplemented by visiting medical and dental teams. Oral health will be a special focus in 2018!
Your donation will make it possible for us to purchase critically needed medications, supplies and equipment!
This is who we are:
Global Health Partnership, Inc. - GHP is a non-profit organization 501 (c) 3 functioning on a 100% volunteer force including doctors, nurses and lay people compassionate about promoting health and making desperately needed medical and dental services accessible to the sick and poor living in resource-limited areas and situations. Our current focus area is rural Kenya, where we aim to develop accessible, affordable and sustainable health care delivery services. We also conduct mobile medical clinics in rural villages and remote areas.
Global Health Partnership,Inc. - GHP is a partnership of two nonprofit entities: Outreach to the World, Inc. and Lifeline Community Fellowship from California along with partners from the community we serve in Kenya.
Our goal now is increase our collaboration with our Kenyan partners so that local core staff is supplemented with visiting international volunteer medical and dental staff thus affording mutual exchange of expertise amongst staff. Health education is also a special focus area particularly in terms of teaching about preventative measures.
