Through our Care program we support clinics in two ways: infrastructural support and access to medication. Notably, all our projects are partnership driven making it possible to meet our goals. Ole Sere Clinic is our latest clinic project. The development of infrastructure and equipping will be supported through Basecamp Foundation Kenya but the operations will be managed by our partner CMF through a partnership agreement between BCFK, the local community and Christian Missionary Fellowship (CMF).
The clinic will reduce the distance Ole sere villagers had to walk to access healthcare. In this regards it addresses the challenges of late diagnosis associated to long distances covered to reach clinics and reduce mortality from curable illnesses like malaria. Apart from attending to normal health demands of the village, this clinic will strive to be a center for voluntary testing and counselling for HIV/AIDs. Indeed, Maasai elders have described HIV as the new Maasai Lion. To take action the community leaders have allocated two acres for clinic construction.
Nkoilale center is also in need of a clinic and Basecamp invites partners to support the construction of a clinic in this center.
