Provision of basic healthcare, with prevention as a key component has been our area of operation where we partner with community-based health faculties. We have partnered with International organizations to provide solutions to the health needs of the communities we serve.
Capacity building for essential Healthcare workers took a center stage last year when we trained local health workers with the support of skilled personnel form Tallaght University Dublin, Ireland. The Emergency Department team came in with all needed training items and 121 young people got training on the handling of emergency cases. We have also reduced risks of maternal and child deaths by proving solutions to lighting systems for health centers through partnership with We Care Solar, a charity that has developed a reliable solar lighting system to provide alternative lighting to the health centers.
The challenges of cervical cancer have been given attention. With a strong partnership with PINCC, an American Foundation that trains, empowers, and does the screening of Cervical cancer. We have prevented many deaths and enabled our local health workers to have the capacity to detect and provide care and support for the Cervical Cancer Victims. With the support of the Archbishop of Homa-Bay Diocese, we are working on a partnership with Aid and Assistance, a foundation under the Order of Malta Switzerland to avail hospital beds and medical equipment to three Mission Hospitals.
