In 2013 together with our partners, we opened a new Health Centre just outside the Masai Mara National Reserve for our Masai community neighbours.
The construction of this Health Centre was funded by the PD Foundation, whilst most of the clinic fit-out and equipment was supplied by the MacTavish family. The organisation of the construction 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 provide the medical staff and run the clinic. CHP offers 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 & postnatal care, a 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 dramatically improves access to quality healthcare for the Maasai community in the Mara Rianda area.
Since 2014 the clinic has carried out:
Recent additions to the clinic have included:
And the clinic is continuing to offer quality health care in 2021. 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.
