Eye Glasses Distributed
Yearly we travel to Kenya to provide free medical care to those in rural areas that can not reach hospitals or do not have enough money to pay for medical treatment. We provide free vision test accompanied with free glasses, dental producers, medicine and much more. We have also expanded to the Baltimore metro area.
For many unprivileged students, the luxury of having a uniform is not afforded to them. Through our Uniform challenge, we work with monetary donations to provide students with a uniform that will last them the whole school year. This project is in partnership with The Golden Girls Foundation in Kenya. The cost of each uniform is just $20.
A simple game of soccer can transform the everyday lives of children in rural areas. It provides a release in many times stressful and somber environments. Through our organization, we are working to provide these children with soccer balls, shoes, and uniforms.
The clinic seed program partners with churches in Kenya to seed healthcare screening clinics by providing blood pressure monitors, thermometers, pulse oximetry machines, blood glucose testing kits and other medical supplies. Each church, besides getting free equipment will have a nurse practitioner champion the program in their community. The doctor or nurse practitioner will represent, guide and enhance the program for the good of the respective community. The church community are also responsible for nurturing the seed through contributions to enhancing the medical services to show commitment to the project. The program will include 20 churches in Kenya.
Girls 4 Ever Menstrual Cup program promote girls’ well being in Kenya. Menstrual cups are an effective measure since they can be emptied and reused compared to menstrual pads which are not reusable. We work with Kenyan based organizations in distributing menstrual cups to girls in Kenya.
In partnership with other organizations, we collect and recycle gently used eyeglasses. We have distributed thousands of eye glasses to people in Kenya who have lost their vision to illness, infection, trauma or old age. Our glasses help keep children in school and allow them to excel. Many Christians who had lost hope are now able to read their bible again.
