Donation of Medical Supplies

Government does not have the funds to supply health clinics with equipment and sufficient medication.

Karimu provides medical supplies to the Dareda Kati Dispensary and the midwives on a regular basis to complement what is received from the government. To ensure our donations are being properly used, we review the records of the Dareda Kati Dispensary on a monthly basis to learn about the number of consultations in the month, the most common illnesses, and the how the medicine is being prescribed by the local doctor. This analysis has also enabled us to identify shortcomings in the clinic which we then address through training during Karimu’s yearly volunteer trip.

This program started in 2010.

Benefits:

  • Overall improvement in health services and broadening of the health services provided
