FICCS in East Africa
- 3 Free Medical Camps (100 girls)
- 8 Charity Heart Surgeries
- Training Local Cardiologist, Biomedical Engineers and Nurses
- Distributed Medicines, Hygiene and Sanitary Supplies
- Grief and Mental Health Counseling
- Mosquito Nets for Maasai Women and Children
- Scholarships, Books and More!
Due to extreme rains the rural Maasai communities have been suffering from malaria, sometimes even resulting in death. Newborns are the most effected by malaria so FICCS donated 200 mosquito nets to women and children in the rural areas.
To help provide sustainable solutions to health and education, FICCS has embarked upon an ambitious program to provide teaching and nursing scholarships to girls in the slums and rural areas of Nairobi. Currently, 4 girls have received nursing scholarships and 3 girls have received teaching scholarships.
If you told me 7 years ago I would be in Africa distributing sanitary pads to girls I would have told you that you are crazy! Yet the main thing young women and girls here in Kenya need are sanitary pads and basic medical supplies. The lack of these supplies leads to easily preventable diseases, menstrual problems and other preventable infections. Simple antibiotics are usually too costly or unavailable.
