Go Kenya, go future: Training sessions in our MMH center
Training sessions on health topics and safety, exceptional care for people with albinism, and income generation and animal health occur regularly in our Making More Health house in Webuye, Western Kenya. "We gathered in outer space, and we had a lot of participants today. And there was a lot on our agenda: we trained on safety, repeated the measurements that can be taken against Covid – 19, and informed persons with albinism and parents about protective skin and eye care. People liked a lot the new MMH flyers on these topics.
Women receiving a women health kit and food provision
Later on, we distributed the women's health packages we received from our friends from the WAWA NGO in Homabay. They contained washable menstruation pads and two panties per woman. This was also highly appreciated. Many women have no access to hygiene products, and the economic situation does not allow them to buy any panty. At the moment, the situation is even more difficult everywhere than before. Many suffer from hunger.
We also officially launched our new educational courses on hairdressing and beauty therapy, carpentry, and computer training. In the end, we also distributed some food packages. Thanks for all this support," said Chrisantus, our local NGO partner from GAASPP.
Together for more health
It is amazing how things are developing if we just put our efforts together. Across all borders and while involving so many different stakeholders. With the vision to empower people to empower themselves. Simultaneously, combining activities that tackle health issues and bring in opportunities for the people when it comes to income generation, infrastructural needs, and general education.
We will soon grow our employee engagement program, start a train the trainer program with some social entrepreneurs out of our network, and initiate artemisia farming. Just watch out for the upcoming news!
