To meet the health challenges of our growing Maisha community, a full-service clinic was built in 2012. During 2013, a container was shipped with furniture and medical equipment to outfit the facility. The clinic’s goal is to provide medical access so treatable conditions such as malaria will no longer result in death.
A pharmacy, known in Kenya as a dispensary, is located within the clinic. There are no other health care facilities within a reasonable walking distance to serve the community. In an area where the main mode of transport is walking and with so many affected by HIV and other seriously disabling diseases, having a nearby clinic is essential.
Kenyan doctors and medical professionals have committed to serve at the Maisha Clinic to provide healthcare for anyone who comes. Care will be offered on a sliding scale, but no one will be turned away.
Our goal is to one day employ Legacy of Hope graduates who dream of becoming doctors and health care professionals to serve in their own community.
Thousands of people have been treated through temporary medical clinics set up with mission participants. Maisha also hosts health and HIV/AIDS educational rallies, runs the Living Positive Project and partners with organizations to provide clean water, hygiene and sanitation education to children at Maisha and throughout the area. Through mosquito net distributions, access to nutrition and these other health projects, Maisha boosts the overall health and longevity of the community.
