Help Us Expand Our Medical Centre With The Power Of #Nasio20

Medical Centre expansion appeal

Our 20th Anniversary appeal is to raise funds to expand our GMK Medical Centre in Mumias.

The Medical Centre was set up in 2016 and offers lifesaving health care in the heart of Musanda, treating over 11,000 patients and safely delivering nearly 500 babies a year. It currently has capacity for 15 inpatients, and we plan to expand our services to allow us to cater for up to 60 inpatients. We also want to build 3 new wards (children’s ward, male ward and female ward), along with an operating theatre, X-ray room and pharmacy.

Readily accessible healthcare saves lives, and our aim is to raise £150,000 to enable us to provide more lifesaving healthcare to our vulnerable communities, which is so desperately needed.

Healthcare is key to Nasio’s approach. Help us build empowered, healthy communities and break the cycle of poverty.
