Give free medical to orphans and street families

by Kayole Mtaa Safi Initiative Vetted since 2017

Summary

NJIWA Medical currently operates as a self-funded clinic combining general practice and maternity. Treatment of needy, orphans & homeless is funded by the proceeds from paying clients, who may also receive a discount depending on their circumstances. Mtaa Safi is supporting the efforts of NJIWA MEDICAL with labour and financial support. The clinic building needs work, medical equipment is required, and medicines always need replenishing. Every little bit helps.

Challenge

According to the World Bank, millions of Kenyans cannot afford to pay for health services. A large fraction of those millions live in Kayole-Soweto. With an estimated population of 700,000 and over 60% unemployment, most families are living on less than $1/day. In an area where cases of cholera, TB and HIV are alarmingly high, where parasites are simply "lived with," and injuries due to accidents and violence are common, affordable healthcare can be a matter of life and death.

Solution

Since mid-2017, NJIWA has filled a great void by providing free and affordable healthcare to the needy of Kayole. Our mission is to ensure that NJIWA Medical continues to meet all licensing requirements, becomes eligible to receive free vaccines and subsidies through government health schemes, and is equipped to meet the rising demand upon its resources.

Long-Term Impact

By building sustainability, Njiwa's free services will continue to grow. Many homeless, orphans and needy have already benefited and many more will in the future. Collaboration between NJIWA, Kayole Mtaa Safi and others is building a strong community network of health-minded people with greater influence on decision-makers for the good of all concerned.
