You kindly offered a gift towards our work in Kenya and so I thought you would like to know what we are doing with that gift - and how we are making it work to save lives.
Our Outreach Teams are offering health to nearly half a million men, women and children in Turkana, in the north west of the country. Working with Merlin nutrition staff, the teams offer primary health care and back up, to the nutrition teams as the food crisis in East Africa continues.
Merlin staff will still be there through out the Holiday season, offering care, love and support. If you are able, please consider offering another gift to this project, thank you.
In North, South & Central Turkana, Merlin is now working at 76 outreach sites (these are temporary sites where our teams set up mobile clinics for one or two days at a time) and 33 health facilities.
By the start of October;
Merlin is offering direct access to health care for more than 485,000 men, women and children.
