UBUNTU Health is providing specialty care for children with without access to health care.

Our Goal

To provide access to life-saving health care and consistent follow up for children that would otherwise fall through the cracks. Through the work of our team in Kenya and our partners in the US, we are fighting to ensure that all children have a place to turn and that the cycle of poverty doesn't prevent a child from having a childhood.

Access to Health Care

In Maai Mahiu and surrounding communities, few families can afford or access consistent health care, especially specialized care (i.e. neural and cardiac care). This leads to children fighting treatable issues that prevent them from attending school, growing strong, or sometimes living.

What We Do

We provide access to essential care through our team of Community Health Workers and the generosity of our quarterly medical teams from 'Specially for Children that host clinics and train local physicians. Our next goal is to establish a weekly clinic with a pediatrician, pharmacist, and nurse available to treat children from surrounding communities with a variety of ailments. Providing access to consistent health care for ailing children not only preserves their health, it prevents untreated issues from threatening the financial health of the family.

Impact

  • We currently serve 236 pediatric patients, providing consistent follow up care and access to essential medications.
  • Nine of our neural patients are now seizure-free and able to speak to their loved ones and attend school for the first time.
  • 21 of our patients have received life saving heart surgery
