We have changed the lives of this child and his entire family!
Alex Wambua is a 3 year old child, the fourth born in a family of 5 children. Alex’s family lives in a 2 room house made with homemade bricks and mud. For livestock they only have 6 chickens. They buy what food they can from a nearby shop. The father is a laborer and the mother is a homemaker.
Alex, a beautiful, bright boy, was born with club feet. He has never been able to walk normally and had no hopes of doing so without the help and generosity of GHP donors.
Thanks to your donations, Alex was able to undergo surgical treatment at the Kijabe Hospital near Nairobi. When seen for his 2 month follow-up and cast removal, his feet look great. Alex must work a few months more to build up the bone density in his heels, but soon he will be walking normally. GHP has changed the future of Alex and his whole family.

We provide direct medical services, deliver medical supplies and equipment, and provide training to local community health providers. We support outreach clinics for the very isolated.
We support a life-saving ambulance that is critical to the transportation of surgial, medical, and obstetrical emergencies. Without this ambulance, emergency services would simply be out of reach for the 35,000 people we serve.
We support full time obstetrical services, delivered by three wonderful Kenya nurses. These services will soon be delivered in our new maternity center.
