Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Medical Clinics

Almost one million people living in dreadful poverty conditions lead to medical problems. HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases have caused the community and the biggest problem is hopelessness which could be solved for a few US cents are unaffordable to the people of Kibera. Things are changing slowly. MSF and AMREF are doing a very good job in Kibera. Many churches also provide medical services. Remember all the diseases you come across in Kibera can be cured. A few years ago in Kenya, there were no Anti-Retro Virals drugs and the support of charities have made the drugs to be now available. How there is hope in Kibera residents.
