Summary

As Kenya Association for the Welfare of People with Epilepsy (KAWE), we are seeking to raise 600,000 Kenya Shillings (USD 6,000) with the purpose of providing one year's supply of anti-epilepsy drugs to 100 patients who are unable to afford the cost of their treatment at KAWE epilepsy clinics. Many children with epilepsy drop out of school due to uncontrolled seizures. By supporting their t

Challenge

There is an estimated 1,000,000 people with epilepsy in Kenya mostly from rural areas where access to epilepsy clinics is a huge challenge. Many patients at the epilepsy clinics are children from very low-income families that struggle to survive from day to day, so an added expense of prescription drugs is often simply not within their means.

Solution

USD 5 can provide one patient's medication for one month. This calculates to USD 60 a year. To provide one year's supply of anti-seizure medication to 100 patients, KAWE is seeking to raise USD 6,000.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting a child's treatment for a year, you will give them a better chance not only to manage their epilepsy but also to get education and success in life.
