Our Kenya intervention
In February 2013 we concluded our activities in support of those with HIV/AIDS malnutrition and victims of conflicts.
Our activities included distributing material aid, operating HIV/AIDS programs and nutrition centres, and constructing hospital facilities.
We provided comprehensive treatment to 4,000 HIV/AIDS patients in the Kombewa and Nyahera hospitals in the Nyanza province.
We provided comprehensive treatment to 3,000 HIV/AIDS patients in the Msambweni hospital and three health clinics in the coastal region close to the Tanzanian border.
We built an HIV/AIDS centre in the Nyahera hospital in the Nyanza province.
We treated some 14,000 children and women in nine nutrition centres in the Garissa region at a time of famine and refugee crisis in neighbouring Somalia.
