Facts about Major Diseases and Lifestyle in Kenya:
Childhood health affects adulthood: With high unemployment, the number of Kenyans living in poverty is rising and some 4 million now rely on food aid.
Around a third of children under five are stunted, with more than 15% underweight.
Common diseases also take their toll on the health of children, lowering their ability to do well in school and make a living later on.
One recent trial in Kenya showed that children who received de-worming pills for two years, giving a boost to their levels of nutrition, had higher earnings as adults.
Kenya is a country in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean. It encompasses savannah, Lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. It's also home to wildlife like lions, buffalos, flamingoes, elephants and rhinos, zebras and many more. From Nairobi (the capital), organized safaris take people to Maasai Mara Reserve, known for its annual wildebeest migrations, and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Tanzania's 5,895m Mt. Kilimanjaro.
On this magnificent medical mission to Kenya, in addition to serving the needs of local community members, you will get a chance to visit the best and remarkable game reserves to see giraffes, zebras, leopards, lions, elephants, rhinos, gazelles, hyenas and much more; all in their natural environment. The thrill of seeing these animals as they sunbathe in the wild and roam across the vast savannah grassland is unbelievable.
