Mission – Health Cycle

With the help of volunteers, this program runs every one or two months in our rural health centres or at our partners centres (churches or schools) where families enrolled in the program receive free primary care for children and free prenatal services for women; In exchange, families pay a very minimal amount in form of insurance called ROH insurance and receive medical care. Those families that cannot afford insurance participate in local projects to address community-wide health issues and promote service learning. Examples include tree planting especially the medicinal NEEM tree, peer nutrition training and community clean up “Oburungi-Bwensi”.

ROH’s health ambassadors on motor bikes visit families regularly, providing health education on issues ranging from malaria to malnutrition, while also arranging transport for the seriously sick to the nearest health centres for more care.

Mission – Action Health

Mission – Action Health:  Each year large teams of volunteer nurses, doctors, educators and students get together once a year to run two weeks of free mobile medical camps in rural communities.  During the camps free checkups, treatment of all sorts of illnesses and basic medicines are supplied.

Such an outreach program costs us about $8500 and this treats for free an estimated 5000 children and mothers during the two weeks camp.
