Project closure summary
Community Health Africa Trust has been implementing health care activities in the Laikipia and Samburu regions of Kenya, for the last 10 years. As you surely know, we reach poor, marginalized communities, who are otherwise under-served, through the most appropriate means of transport, either with vehicles, camels, providing services such as family planning and reproductive health, and basic curative treatment, which includes TB and malaria, and relevant components of HIV/AIDS services.
Both projects began in January 2011 and were intended to close out in June 2013, having run for 21/2 years. Over that period of time, through your valued donations and other contributions, we have reached about 30,000 women with various methods of family planning services and 12,000 individuals with basic curative medications.
The Integrated Mobile Health Clinics project has so far attracted $ 37,673.00
The Family Planning and environmental health initiative has so far attracted $8,135.00
Through the support of Global Giving, CHAT has continued to contribute significantly towards achieving Kenya’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the country’s development blueprint, the Vision 2030.
These achievements been done through cooperation with support of our key partners (the Ministry of Health MoH) in the delivery of health services.

We, at CHAT, wish to post a new project on GlobalGiving. The new integrated project is entitled, Mobile Health Clinics for the Poor & Excluded Communities of Kenya. We will continue our mission of mitigating against extreme suffering and poverty by escalating our family planning and basic healthcare services to reach poor, excluded and often remote communities.
We are hoping to reach 40,000 women this year with family planning services.
We thank our donors for the continuous support extended to the marginalized communities we serve and very much look forward to a continued partnership with Global Giving and its exceedingly generous and engaged community of donors.
