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.
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.
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.
