About

The local people of Mathare do not have access to affordable health care as many of them are unemployed and or orphans. Many young people do not have parental help to access health care. But the people behind Mathare Youth Talented Organisation are not victims of their circumstance. Unwilling to do nothing in the face of an inadequate public health system, they set about to create their own clinic using entirely volunteer labour and donated materials. Having secured the building, they are now looking for volunteers to help them care for their people. They are also looking for help to secure medical equipment and supplies. They are working to get their clinic registered with the Kenya authorities. Recognising their effort, the Kenyan government is helping with some clinic programmes such as Immunization and Family Planning. This grass-roots clinic gives doctors, nurses, and other health care workers a unique opportunity to engage with the community and make a real difference to the lives of people who have next to nothing. The conditions are most basic, but the enthusiasm and joyfulness of the local people is infectious! Be prepared for the most rewarding experience of your life!
