We are delighted to announce the opening on Friday 4th October 2013 of a new Health Centre at Mara Rianda just outside the Masai Mara National Reserve for our Masai community neighbours.
The construction of the Health Centre was funded by the PD Foundation and most of the clinic fit-out and equipment, by the MacTavish family. The organisation of the construction including fit out and provision of the infrastructure was carried out by The Mara Rianda Charitable Trust in conjunction with Governors Camp Collection. The clinic was formally handed over to Community Health Partners Kenya (CHP) who will provide the medical staff and run the clinic.
CHP offer accessible, affordable and quality healthcare for all people. The health facility includes an internal waiting area, three consulting rooms, a dispensary and three in patient wards of five beds each catering for male, female and paediatric patients.
CHP provides general outpatient care, antenatal & post natal care, well child clinic, family planning, HIV testing and counselling, laboratory services, HIV / Aids Care and treatment, integrated community outreach services, prevention of mother to child transmission, OVC care, TB care and management, nutrition and dietetics and water and sanitation advice.
This health facility will dramatically improve access to quality healthcare for the Masai community in the Mara Rianda area. The morning after the opening over 30 patients attended the outpatient clinic seeking medical help.
We are very proud to have been partners in this great venture and wish to thank Peter Diethelm (PD Foundation), the MacTavish Family, Richard & Pola Long (The Mara Rianda Charitable Trust), CHP and everyone involved in the project.
