Healthcare

In 2016 we opened our new medical centre in the heart of Musanda.

The orphaned children we care for at St Irenes and Noah’s Ark early childhood development centres, as well as their guardians, receive free healthcare, and other community members are encouraged to pay a small fee if possible. Any income generated from this centre is fed back into our other projects to help break the cycle of poverty and reduce reliance on UK donors.

At the centre we regularly check for common illnesses and infections such as jiggers, malaria and ringworm, and then offer those affected by these conditions prompt treatment. If we are unable to cater for the needs of those with more serious illnesses or ailments, we arrange transportation to the nearest hospital.

We provide malnourished children with a special diet consisting of spirulina which is grown and sold by Nasio employees.

We have also used the medical centre as a hub to distribute dietary supplements kindly donated by one of our partner organisations Oxford Vitality. We currently employee one nurse and one trained clinical officer who is licensed to run HIV clinics and outreach.

The Nasio Trust offer trainee medical professionals the opportunity to come and work at our medical centre and stay in our guesthouse in Musanda. Our 10 day medical elective placements for those training to become doctors, nurses, midwives, and dentistsĀ are competitively priced, and more details can be found here.

As well as experiencing what it is like to work in rural Musanda, volunteers will be given the opportunity to work alongside professionals at St Mary’s hospital in Mumias, where resources are limited and staff levels are poor.
