Meet Nurse Caroline…
September 2022

The GMK Medical Centre was completed in 2016, with the goal to make healthcare available to people in desperately impoverished communities. 

6 years on and we treated 17 thousand patients in 2021, with an average of 35 babies delivered per month in the first half of 2022 – a huge development from 47 deliveries overall in the opening year.

Our nurses are the life-blood of the medical centre, conducting vital work with patients in the community every single day.

Nurse Caroline has had enormous success with her work which focuses on delivering new lives into the world! Read her story here…

“My name is Caroline Njuguna, 30 years old, a mother of one coming from a humble background.

I did my Diploma in Community Health Nursing and graduated in the year 2018. My main role as a nurse is to ensure quality service delivery to patients/clients. 

I came to know Nasio Trust through a friend who briefly mentioned about the organization and I went ahead and learnt about it on Facebook but something touched me about how they have changed lives in the community. I applied for an opportunity and luckily I got the job. 

Working in Nasio Trust has been of great experience, getting to know the community at different levels, their mental status, social-economic status, education level, culture myths and beliefs affecting them. The Nasio Trust as an organisation has really tried to intervene in making their lives better. 

I got promoted last year in the month of September to hold a position of a nurse – in charge and my roles are;

  • Ensuring patients and staffs satisfaction, 
  • Maintaining a safe environment for the patients and the staffs, 
  • Ensuring high standards and quality care is maintained aligning with the hospital goals.

Working in Nasio Trust and serving the community has enabled me to gain experience in management skills and also the ability to make a difference in maintaining efficiency and effectiveness.

The numbers of Deliveries varies but lately we have been recording the highest and we would like to maintain the curve. What has really helped the nurses is that they work as a team in providing the services and we do ensure our patients admire to come back again for the service at our hospital.”

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
