Providing Free Health Services And Education

SEMREP is an NGO based in Western province,part of Kenya.In full it is defined as Serve Education Medication and Relief Program.Throughout my home area,an exercise carried out by this organization saw many faces smiling.One three occasions within last year,they exhibited an event which saw people access free medical services.They had hired professional doctors and they were the ones accessing those medical services.Those suffering from Malaria,Tuberculosis,water bone diseases got treated.Many people from my area really benefited from that program which also saw many medicines being administered to patients.Also sometime last year,they launched a initiative to ensure poor students are able to get high school education.From then to date,they have been paying school fees for bright but poor students who find it difficult to got school fees.
