MedTreks Kenya 2020! 

 

Our MedTreks Kenya program started off with a bang this year in January 2020! 

The team arrived in Kenya the first week of January and hit the ground running. One of the highlights of the trip was that the MedTreks team helped to train hands-on skills for the 200 Community Health Volunteers who were participating in HopeCore's 5 Day Level 1 certification training. The MedTreks team arrived the week of the training and provided hands-on skills-stations to the Community Health Volunteers on topics such as Wound Care, First Aid, CPR, Choking and assessment of the sick child. 

 

The HopeCore nurses received selective training on leadership, change management and were trained in skills with IUD insertion and Cervical Cancer screening. 

 

We are excited about how much this program is growing! We are looking forward to continuing to build out the training and capacity building program through a dedicated skills lab at HopeCore over the next year. 

 

Thank you again for your support in helping to build capacity in Kenya! 

 

Warmly,

Ari & the MedTreks Team

Dear friends, 

Our MedTreks teams are excited to return to Chogoria this January to work with Village HopeCore International. Every time our team returns, we have a focus for our time in the village. This year's focus, we will be involved in the first 5-day certification training for HopeCore's Community Health Volunteers. We will be helping to set up skills stations, teaching on various topics from CPR, first aid, splinting, and basic public health interventions. 

We are also hoping to provide every CHV their own first aid kit. If you would like to sponsor a community health volunteer with a first aid kit, you can donate $50 to purchase a basic first aid kit. You can also sponsor an entire training for a CHW which is $300 which includes transportation, meals, education materials, uniform, certificate, smartphone, and first aid kit.

 

Thank you for your ongoing support in helping to improve the health of others!

 

Sincerely,

Ari and the MedTreks team

Hello friends!

We are excited to share that another MedTreks team will be returning next week to Kenya to work with Village HopeCore! If you would like to follow our teams while we are over there, follow us on Instagram @medtreks_international

The theme for this trip is "Celebrating the African Mother and Child". We will be working to provide training in various maternal child health topics. We will also be helping out at the community pop-up clinics throughout the week. 

As many of you know, part of our goal for the MedTreks program is not just to provide ongoing medical and clinical education, but it is also to help provide much needed medical supplies to the public health program in Kenya. Since our teams travel over twice a year now, we are able to bring most of the donated items in our bags, which helps HopeCore out tremendously.

Below you will find a list of clinic items that are needed in Kenya. If you would like to make a specific donation just add the donation item in the description when you submit your payment. 

Thank you for your continued support of our program!

Asante Sana!

Today is World Malaria Day and MedTreks is proud to announce a new project called "Kids Helping Kids" that focuses on Malaria Prevention and Eradication. 

The project aims to purchase 5,000 new long-lasting insecticide treated bednets for Village HopeCore by August 2019. The idea of the project was created by one of the MedTreks Faculty, Jenny Denger and her two sons Crixus (6) and Tayden (8), who will be traveling to Kenya with Jenny and her husband as part of the MedTreks team this August. 

 

The boys are working to raise the funds and also helping to spread information about malaria that kills a child every 2 minutes, yet it is a preventable illness with low-cost interventions such as bednets. 

 

To help sponsor a net you can check out our new project: Kids Helping Kids 

 

Thank you again for your continued support, helping us empower health workers and communities in Kenya! 

 

Asante Sana, 

The MedTreks Team.
