Voi Health Project


In 1992, the Kaleoleni community raised money from harambees for a small clinic to be housed in an old Ministry for Works building. By 1994, the Ndovu Clinic was very dilapidated, and money for its upkeep had run out. Community elders approached KWS for renovation assistance and to create a dispensary.

KWS agreed and, together with Tusk Force, which donated Kshs 1.2 million, rehabilitated the building. The clinic and new dispensary will offer immunizations, dressings, drugs, family planning and children’s preventative healthcare and education for about 5,700 people.

It will also serve travellers on the main Mombasa/Nairobi highway, which passes through Voi, who may be in need of emergency assistance. KWS has applied on behalf of the community for further funding to stock drugs and equipment, put in electricity and install a secure perimeter fence. The dispensary will open early 1996.
