In developing countries, like Kenya, the prevailing poverty, ignorance, illiteracy and poor health consciousness further adds to the problem of the diabetic epidemic. Those who cannot afford or do not have bare minimum health care facilities are likely to be diagnosed late and suffer from diabetes related complications.
According to the World Bank’s 2018 report, poverty rates in Kenya remain higher than other lower middle-income countries. The latest Kenya Integrated Household Budget Survey (KIHBS) noted that this was especially true in rural areas across the country.
Our focus is to support struggling families in rural Kenya with a focus on those with children diagnosed with diabetes, an often overlooked issue in the region.
How we do that:
1. By supporting existing medical care facilities and individuals with needed diabetes supplies and insulin.
2. We encourage sustainable development thorough partnerships, collaboration and outreach.
Enable the poorest of the poor escape poverty permanently.
