These past  months your faithful support has impacted so many lives who needed Urgent Medical help.

Thank You!

We saw a series of broken bones, stomach ailments, cancer treatments, diagnoses of very serious disease and of course tons of malaria cases as it seems the mosquitos in Oyugis are on the attack!

But this was also a season of babies.  Babies suffering from malnutrition, typhoid, and malaria.

Several of these cases involved not only the babies but their mums too.

For example…a set of twins were in the hospital, both with different ailments.  Their mum stayed by their side and ended up becoming ill and admitted as well.  The cost of the hospital was covered for both babies and mum through some of your donations.  This mum was too ill to nurse her children and so formula was purchased to keep them nourished until mum was recovering and sent home.

Another mum was devastatingly ill and couldn’t nurse.  Her month old baby laid by her side in her hospital bed and was fed with formula purchased by you and other donors.

These cases were life-saving! 

Thank You so much for being a part of these efforts to help those needing urgent medical care. 
You are truly a blessing!

Countless lives have been healed and in some cases saved….All because of YOU!

Thank You for supporting our Urgent Medical Fund!

Over the past few months, so many different medical needs came to us for help.

Your support of this  fund has been invaluable!

Surgeries, snake bites, illness, COVID, broken bones, scans, x-rays…and the list continues!

As the severity of cases increase, so do the costs to treat them.  Your support has helped to make those treatments happen!

Thank You!

Vincent needed hospitalization and medications for his anemia… Check!

Beryl needed an ear specialist to treat her ailments…Check!

Kennedy needed hospitalization and meds for ascites…Check!

Lucy needed help to cover the cost of her chemo…Check!

And the list goes on…and so do our Thanks to You!

Because of you, people are getting their health back and getting back to their lives…Thank You!

Your support for our Urgent Medical project is SO, SO appreciated! Thank You!

These past months have seen so many traumatic injuries and incidents. Your faithful support has helped to cover multiple medical costs.

Two such instances were unconscious young people….one from a sports injury and the other from a vicious assault. One has since recovered, the other is still in the process.

Two work accidents involved hospitalizations and broken bones. Their medical needs are being met as well with your support.

Eye injuries, malaria, biopsies, rabies treatments, CT scans and MRIs and so much more….babies to the elderly…YOUR support has helped to cover the costs.

And just as important, it also has restored health and well being AND it has saved lives.

Thank You, Thank You for your heart and help for the people of Kenya.

Recently we heard an amazing story out of Oyugis that referenced back to the Vision Clinic held earlier in town.

Besides more people around town wearing eyeglasses, one of the recipients shared his story with one of the volunteers who had helped at the clinic.

This gentleman makes his living by shining shoes in town.  His eyesight was so poor that each morning someone would have to lead him down to where his work station was located. 

At the end of the day, someone would need to lead him back to his home

He reports that with his prescription eyeglasses received at the Vision Clinic, he now walks himself to his work station and back home again without any assistance.

And with a huge grins says he can even look up and see the faces of those who are getting their shoes shined.

Attending the Clinic and getting corrective eyeglasses has changed his world.

Thanks to your support to the Medical fund of Olalo of Hope – Kenya, lives are being changed with stories like his….sight returned bringing new life!!!

Thank you for your support!

Working within the one community of Oyugis, Kenya, the basic needs of the people clearly become defined, and we can look for ways to address those needs.

Recently Olalo of Hope partnered with GEM (Global Eyeglass Ministry) to bring a free vision clinic to the town.  For 13 days a team of volunteers from the U.S. and the local community tested the vision of the people as part of our Medical program. 

Through this process, we also were able to address medical issues that needed attention. Two of our own local volunteers ended up spending time in the hospital dealing with various ailments. Both are recovering at home currently.

Other obvious conditions were seen and addressed as people came each day to get their eyes tested.

In good practice with COVID-19 safeguards, hand washing stations were set up at the clinic and each person had their temperature taken prior to being tested.  Amazingly only one person had to be turned away because they had a fever.

Through the 13 days of clinic, a total of 889 people were seen; 357 people were matched with prescription eyeglasses; and almost 530 pairs of readers were given out.

There is not much that is more precious than seeing the look on the faces and smiles (yes smiles even through the wearing of masks) of someone who can finally see clearly for the first time.  It just makes your heart joyful and thankful...ours and theirs!

Several urgent medical situations arose, both at the clinic and in the surrounding community.  Those we had knowledge of were sent to local hospitals for treatment.  Malaria and typhoid are still prevalent as well as a growing number of injuries caused by recent changes in the roads.

Getting Urgent Medical care was all possible due to your generous hearts supporting the Urgent Medical Fund of Olalo of Hope -  Kenya.

We thank you for your support, and the people helped Thank You because you cared and changed their lives!

Gratefully,
