CFWclinics is a franchise network of medical clinics and drug shops in Kenya that are owned and operated by a Kenyan nurse or community health worker. Many CFWclinics patients are too poor to pay for the medical care they need, and our clinic owners end up covering the cost at a loss. To address this issue, we've set up a subsidy fund that allows for our poorest patients to get the care they need, while also allowing our clinic owners to run a successful business.
The treatable and preventable diseases claiming the most lives in East Africa are malaria, respiratory infections, diarrhea and tuberculosis. And while CFWclinics provide essential medicines and effective-quality care at fair prices, we still have some patients who can't afford care. We can change that with your help!
We've set up a fund to collect donations to pay for our poorest patients to receive care. It's a win-win-win: 1) Every patient can receive care, regardless of income 2) Our clinic owners' businesses will prosper and 3) YOU can feel good knowing your money is going directly to the source.
With your support, the CFWclinics franchise network will continue to grow in Kenya, eventually serving millions of people per year with lifesaving medicines and effective-quality healthcare.
