We held our bi-annual medical camp on a Saturday in April at the Dagoretti City Council Grounds, near our local office.
In one day 376 people received medical, dental, and eye care, along with preventative nutrition, sexual health, and hygiene care.
Of the 376 attendees, 223 were students of the program, 30 were guardians, 20 were staff members, and 103 others were relatives and neighbors of the children in the program.
Friends of Ngong Road provides ongoing healthcare when needed throughout the year to students. This medical camp is vital for detecting chronic issues, delivering preventive care, and ensuring early intervention for better health outcomes.
The clinic cared for students with diverse dental needs, extracting teeth for five individuals among them.
The clinic addressed bloated abdomens, ear issues, headaches, sprains, respiratory infections, and peptic ulcers, catering to diverse symptoms.
They also conducted HIV testing and provided education about treatment and care for those who are HIV+.
The medical camp is an important service we are fortunate to be able to offer our students and community. Our generous sponsors and donors make the medical camp possible, enabling kids to learn better when they are healthier.
This event is co-sponsored in Kenya with Ngong Road Health Centre, Nairobi Women’s Hospital, St. Joseph Catholic Health Centre, Sunrise Dental clinic, Sai Pharmaceuticals Company, Savant’s Bookshop, and volunteers from Kikuyu and Voi Rotary Clubs and Red Cross.
Thank you to the community of Friends of Ngong Road for making medical camp possible.
