Kenya: Namoruputh Health Centre

donate to erdo today

deborah sirjoosingh at namoruputh health centreDeborah Sirjoosingh is a PAOC Global Worker and began ministering to the Turkana people in Northern Kenya more than 30 years ago. Her passion is to bring God’s love and hope to each individual and community. For three decades, Deborah has led the work in the medical dispensary which serves approximately 25,000 people.

In such a remote, arid area where life is difficult and food is scarce, this clinic is a beacon of hope! People travel by foot for up to a week to reach this facility in search of treatment and the Christ-centered compassion that it offers. However, the needs in the community far exceeded what the health facility could provide. No health facility within the Loima District offered in-patient services or efficient out-patient care. This forced patients to be referred to Lodwar County Referral Hospital, 80 km away – a distance almost impossible to reach on foot when sick, hungry and thirsty.

In 2013, construction began to transform Namoruputh Dispensary into a health centre. Thanks to our generous donors, today, the facility now has 28 hospital staff, in-patient, out-patient and administration blocks, and we are in the process of renovating the dispensary into HIV, TB and nutrition clinics.

1. Building of HIV Comprehensive Care Clinic
2. Upgraded Maternity Unit (delivery rooms, post-natal rooms, obstetrics/gynecological minor theatre)
3. Building of upgraded Laboratory Facilities facilitating blood screening and transfusion
4. Building of Nutritional Clinic / Storage Rooms / Staff Room
5. Operational Assistance for Two Years

Create a healthy future for the Turkana people in Northern Kenya today!
