The Maasai people are indigenous to North Central Tanzania and Southern Kenya. In villages of Southern Kenya, the nearest clinic is over 60 miles away. Most of the sick cannot afford to make this journey and many that attempt the journey do not survive. Our clinic located in the Maasai region of Kenya founded in August 2007 can save the lives of thousands of mothers and babies who cannot travel the distance to the district hospital for care.

Since our first delivery in 2007, we have provided care and support for the families in the region. Now, we hope to begin construction on a clinic expansion.  The modest expansion will add additional beds for patients and allow volunteer doctors to provide around-the-clock care to the community.  With your financial support we can accomplish this goal.
