They found her in the forest, unconscious, beaten and brutally raped. The hospital estimates her to be 12 years old. Her name and hometown aren't known so they called Olalo to help. The generosity of our donors helps us to cover her medical costs while we search for her family. This is what our Urgent Medical Fund does and where your support goescovering the medical costs for those who can't speak for themselves or have no money to pay for it. It's YOUR generosity that heals and saves lives!
With over 50% of Kenya's population living in poverty, many families struggle to survive on $1 a day. Choosing medical help for a sick child, getting help for poor eyesight or feeding the family for the day are hard decisions, but family food wins out. Left untreated, these very treatable conditions worsen to more serious illnesses sometimes leading to death. Decreasing eyesight leads to a diminished life by limiting what people can or cannot do. Both situations can be remedied by your gifts.
The project identifies those who suffer medically because of their poverty, giving them access to urgent medical treatment at local hospitals. The low cost for medical procedures, treatments and medications increases the number of children and families Olalo can help. Bringing the vision clinic to Oyugis means days of free-vision testing for all ages and when appropriate, prescription eyeglasses are given...all free of charge to the patient. What a blessing to people who can once again see!
A healthier population benefits the entire community. Healthy bodies resistant to illness leads to less time missed in school for students and increased productivity in the workplace. Inexpensive tests and medications restore health and save lives, while immediate treatment for accidents and injuries allow for better, faster healing and overall improved living conditions. Giving back vision changes lives! Healthier and happier lives results from being able to see clearly...everybody wins!
