Kenya is a beautiful country with wonderful people but like all countries there will be times when there are problems and August 2017 has been one of these times. General elections are so emotive and surrounded by so much fear, lets hope the worst has gone and that there are great things to come.
One of these great things was a Free Medical Camp , organised through a long standing friend of Phoebe. He came over with seven people from Colorado U.S.A and treated 3,900 people in two site.
These amazing people started in Kisumu and were there for 2 days. The worked around the clock, helping everyone they could.
The medical services have been out of action except for extreme emergencies for over three months. Most of the Doctors and nurses appear to be striking. I am sure there are some who are not but this puts the whole community under enormous pressure and unnecessary pain.
The team moved on to Bondo where they treated many members of the Great Lake Foundation, a network set up by Phoebe and her colleagues to motivate and initiate small community businesses throughout a huge area of Kisumu, Bondo and Siaya. Once again this team of wonderful medics worked tirelessly and treated the elderly, children and widows of the Bondo area.
There may be bad things happening but when you look there are ALWAYS ordinary people doing Extra-Ordinary things in this world.
A huge thank you to the, “Magnificent Seven”, from Colorado USA.
