Safari Run

We can double the number of people served

Although there are more desperately poor people in Kenya, Africa than ever, with your help we can expand health services.

This is a typical outreach clinic, serving over 70 patients who would otherwise not get health care.

Nurse Vincent, who has been with the Kisesini clinic for five years, has been promoted as head nurse in the Kitangi regional hospital, which serves many of the families of the target population of our GHP project. Vincent has requested GHP support, especially for medicine and essential supplies that are lacking at Katangi hospital. With your help we can assist Katangi hospital to improve health care for these families in our service area. This means doubling our services, our donations, and our efforts. We are up to the task!

In 2014 we served over 13,000 patients, including preventative care, immunizations, prenatal care, and the birth of 86 healthy infants. And our most inspiring work is yet to come.

Denis Wambua (means born during rain) is a 10 year old orphan who cannot remember being well. His recurrent episodes of flu, joint pain, cough, and weakness are due to HIV infection.

Denis is truly among the poorest of the poor in the Kisesini clinic area. He needs lab tests, transportation, antiretroviral drugs, nutrition, and support of all kinds to feel well enough to continue his studies in the 4th grade.

With your help, Denis can have a full life. Please help him.GHP can save lives

We can treat pneumonia and save the life of a child, for only a quarter.

We need your help this holiday season

We can provide an outreach clinic to a remote village providing child immunizations, family planning, prenatal care, and treatment of child malnutrition for only $60.

We can purchase essential medicine and supplies to continue high quality care at the Kisesini clinic for about $900/month.

Please help us provide health and hope for the thousands of mothers and children whom we serve.

We have changed the lives of this child and his entire family!

Alex Wambua and his mom before surgery

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.

Needs In Kenya

Funds to cover the costs of medicine, supplies, and emergency transportation. Furnishings, including beds and medical equipment, for the new maternity center. Funds to continue educational programs for the Community Health Workers who extend our medical mission to the very isolated. Donate now.
