Thanks to Totalife, the Kenya Red Cross has its first mobile clinic. An epochal turning point for health care in Kenya, which has now another ally to bring support and assistance.
Created in collaboration with the K.R.C.S., the Red Cross of Kenya (home of Malindi), the mobile clinic, in fact, will represent a particularly effective tool to provide care and medical assistance within a radius of 400 kilometers. This, in short, means that thousands of people from entire villages, unable to reach the hospitals of Malindi and Nairobi, will have home medical care.
The idea of the mobile clinic was born last year during a meeting with the managers of Kenyan Red Cross and that began to take shape especially after seeing K.R.C.S. and its volunteers during the “Anti Jigger Campaign”, the campaign linked to the treatment of Tungiasis started in 2015 in collaboration with the Karibuni Onlus association, which aims at the healing of more than 6000 people, for the most part children and the prevention of this pathology: tungiasis is, in fact, an infestation caused by the penetration into the skin of the Tunga Penetrans flea.
The project of the mobile clinic, already existing and already set up, which will be officially presented on January 6, 2018 in Malindi, was made possible only thanks to the support of Totalife, with a donation of 70,000 euros. A historical result for the timing and the value of the operation. It is a fact that most of the deaths or the worsening of the health conditions of the Kenyan population is due to the impossibility of reaching the hospital garrisons.
