Breaking the cycle of poverty


GMK Medical Centre

In Western Kenya where The Nasio Trust operates, healthcare provisions by the government are not enough to meet the needs of people. Organisations like The Nasio Trust are vital for meeting these healthcare gaps and providing cheap yet accessible medical services to a growing rural population.

The need for a medical centre

In November of 2013 a young boy called Livingstone tragically lost his life while being carried by his mother on the 10 mile route to the nearest hospital. He was just 5 years old. The wake of this tragedy exposed just how vulnerable people are when access to medical care is so difficult. You can read Livingstone’s full story here.

In June 2016 we completed the building of the George Mudenyo Kadima Medical Centre.

The GMK Medical Centre

Any income generated goes back into the project to break the reliance on charity and work to end the cycle of poverty.
