Barbara Apio

Barbara is 10 years old and is studying in P4. Her father, Jasper, is a peasant farmer in Adwari, a village 9kms from KHC. Jasper borrowed a motorcycle from a friend and taught himself how to ride it in order to get his daughter to KHC. Barbara came to the clinic complaining of chest pain, headaches and a tooth ache. Her father has brought her to KHC a few times before and the treatment they have provided has helped. He now brings all his family members when they are unwell. Barbara was tested for malaria and typhoid but her results were negative. The staff then tested her for brucellosis. Her tooth was found to have a hole in it so it was removed. It had rotted right down to the root. When asked why he chose KHC, Jasper said: “KHC has good reception and services”.

Juspin Okii

Juspin is 9 years old and is studying in P1 at Amori Primary School. On 21 January, she was bitten by a snake on her lower leg however the venom soon spread right up to her knee. Her whole leg had swollen and the lower leg had started to rot. Her father, Patrick, immediately took her to their local medical centre where she received very poor treatment and the wound only became worse. After one week, Patrick (a peasant farmer) decided to hire a boda to take them the 18miles from their village to KHC where he knew they would receive proper treatment. He paid 25,000 shillings for the return ride. After her initial treatment at KHC, Patrick immediately saw a change. They have since stayed at KHC for one month while she recovers. The staff are reliable and clean and change the dressings on her wound each day. She still can’t walk and they’re not sure how long she will need to stay however they are seeing improvement.
When asked why he chose KHC, Patrick said: “The news had spread that KHC gives good services. I have seen a lot of people from my village come here. This is the first time I have been and I would come back because I have seen the services provided and they are good.”

Piona and her mother Santa

Santa brought her daughter, Piona, to KHC for her first immunisations. She walked one km from her home to KHC. Free immunisations are provided to the community every Wednesday. A few months later, Piona was brought back to KHC for her six month immunisations. Her mother was so impressed with the services at KHC that she now brings the rest of her family here when they are sick.

Joseph Eladu

Joseph is the Chairman for NRM in Atiro. Atiro is a village of Olilim sub-county, 40kms from KHC. Joseph had a friend, the principal of the local primary school, drive him by motorbike to KHC to be treated. Joseph was suffering from aches in his lower abdomen. Had been experiencing pain for more than a week. Joseph was found to have typhoid and kidney wounds. He was given treatment to be taken over one month.
