A Raise for the Community Health Workers

Some of the best Community Health Workers (CHWs) in the world work with the Kisesini Clinic. These trained lay people do critical work that saves lives, beginning with the first day of life. Up to now they have received a per diem of $2.50 for a day’s work. This is not enough to keep their bicycles in repair to enable them to travel to the remote locations they visit. There has been significant inflation in Kenya in the last decade. The GHP board has agreed to raise the per diem of the CHWs to $3.50. Thank you for your life-saving work.IMG_1761
