2020 has been a roller coaster, and we are thrilled to announce we have a new team member in Kenya to help us navigate this ride and serve our community!
“Welcome aboard to Dr. Joy! An employee like her, intelligent, talented, and full of energy, is an asset to our organization. Having Dr. Joy in our organization is a great honor, and we know she will be a great addition to our team and an instrument of change to our community. She is going to help restore hope to the hopeless. Through her services with the Ubuntu Life Foundation, families will experience different lives. We look forward to a successful journey with Dr. Joy, so thank you to our Tribe, who helped bring her on board!” -Mary Kuria, Ubuntu Life Foundation Program Manager
Dr. Joy Masinde has officially joined Ubuntu Life Foundation as our in-house physician. This is a massive step for the Foundation’s health program as we shift towards ongoing care for all pediatric patients. Dr. Joy is from nearby Nakuru, and we got to know her through her internship with Kijabe Hospital. She has been involved with community work since high school and is passionate about helping families that have a child with disabilities. Our team has embraced her with open arms. We are all incredibly thankful to have found such a flexible, assertive, and knowledgeable doctor to join our team as we look forward to opening the Children’s Wellness Centre next year. Stay tuned for updates from Dr. Joy herself as she gets to know our Ubuntu kids!
“My name is Dr. Joy Naliaka Masinde, a general practitioner with a special interest in pediatrics. I hold a Degree in Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. Currently, I am working at Ubuntu Life Foundation, where I help run the neurology Clinic. I get to see and follow up with children with special needs.
My greatest inspiration has always been my clients, the progress and milestones they are making, and helping them live a normal life. Bearing in mind how challenging it is and the stigma surrounding raising our children with special needs, Ubuntu gives them a chance to live a normal life and offers a lot of support to their families holistically.
Only a life lived for others is a life, worthwhile-Albert Einstein.”
