Who we are
Tumaini Health is building a health centre for the village of Rwika in Eastern Kenya.
This rural community has a growing number of health needs varying from acute emergency cases to chronic diseases. These include respiratory infections, drug addictions and the need to cater for a rapidly increasing elderly population that suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis and diabetes.
Tumaini Health Centre will initially offer the following services:
Same day walk-in consultation by a clinical officer (physician assistant) assisted by a nurse
Efficient diagnostic blood and urine tests
Mental health counselling services
Long-term management of chronic conditions
Local and overseas volunteering opportunities
In the future Tumaini Health Centre will be a 24-hour facility with the added provision of a chapel for spiritual care.
