medicalcamps

Twice a year, in partnership with Chamberlain College of Nursing, the residents of the Korogocho, and other Kenyan slums  receive basic medical care free of charge for two weeks.  Poor people in Nairobi's slums can't afford even the simplest medical care. These medical camps have also proven vital in detecting more serious medical conditions that might not otherwise have been recognized and treated.  Our friends from Chamberlain over the past few years have treated literally thousands of people from cute infants, to struggling senior citizens to a colony of lepers in Korogocho.

TESTIMONIALS

Our students' interest in serving while learning on these humanitarian missions helps develop their community spirit and foster the development of the compassionate aspect of medicine,” McIntyre said. “We have numerous stories of life-saving interventions initiated by students, with close supervision and direction by our preceptor MDs who accompany them.

The days were long, sunrise to sunset and hard physically and emotionally. I taught the translators, women and children how to make a solar funnel cooker using a recycled piece of card board and some foil. They were amazed at the fact that when the sun was shining, the money they use to purchase coal, kerosene or diesel to cook two meals could be used to buy 10 eggs instead. Yes we cooked eggs in the solar cooker. We used some black electrical tape to make a pot out of a metal mug with a tight fitting cover.”
