Challenge

Currently, we have more than 150 children from low and middle income living with a stoma in Kenya and Tanzania. Although we are working diligently with volunteer pediatric colorectal surgeons, nurses and stoma organizations to provide invaluable support to these children, however, they are still having limited independent mobilization and self-caring capabilities, self-stigmatization, family abandonment and excluded from schooling. This project will support 100 children in Kenya and Tanzania.

Solution

Our affiliate support group, Nyanza Kenya Ostomy Association provides surgical, stoma supplies and nutritious meals to children living with a stoma. The children's parents and nurses are trained in stoma care and management. The parents are also taught to share their knowledge with new parents having stoma children.

Long-Term Impact

This project will train 100 parents allowing them to improve care and quality of life of children living with stoma at the hospital and home. Trained parents will promote stoma campaigns informing the public, health professionals, and our partner hospitals about stoma. The project will encourage and establish two sustainable pediatric colorectal programs at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu Kenya and Bugando Medical Center, Mwanza Tanzania.
