Do It To Believe It

Hey there, this is Daniel Mbachia,

I have just graduated from the University of Nairobi with a BSc microbiology and Biotechnology. I have been volunteering with CHAT since mid-June. Firstly I would like to thank Shanni for giving me a chance and the rest of the team for the warm welcome.

When I first arrived I was coming to help with a solar powered mobile vaccine refrigeration unit where I collected data for field trials. I went out on a camel mobile clinic. How was the experience? Oh I have only this to say, DO IT TO BELIEVE IT! I enjoyed every bit of it, even when I walked bare feet due to blisters; it was just fun and fun. I can very boldly say I have not only seen and know the good of family planning but I have been exposed to the beauty of it all. Just to mention saving school girls from unwanted pregnancies or crude abortions, a mother from the burden of raising a huge family from limited resources and also the health aspect to the women in spacing their children.

 As of now I am helping out with updating our maps to allow most of you out there to have a clue of who we are and where we serve most of the communities from. That is for both motor and camel clinics. I have been marking points, which I will use to come up with the route maps. I have been based in Nanyuki where I am with the rest of the office staff. I have been also helping out with general office work and I am very happy to be among the few people out here trying to make a difference of what we all want to see.
