What we do

BI-ANNUAL 2 WEEK MEDICAL MISSION
WHO CAN SERVE ON THE MEDICAL MISSION

Medical doctors, medical providers, medical missionaries, Nurse practitioners, nurses, RNs, LPNs, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and anyone who has a heart to promote and support community health services in underserved rural communities of Kenya.

ON-SITE PROGRAM

The on-site Medical comprises of volunteer health professional from the US, Kenya and other countries as invited. The mission last approximately two weeks and follows a tight educational program, allowing for volunteers to participate in as many areas as they desire. Given the locations of our missions, we leave two days for travel to country and one for travel in country to the site, estimating three days to arrive and return. This leaves eight full on-site medical clinic. Given the rigor of the program the last day on site is left open and will be coordinated with the group for travel, sightseeing and whatever else they may desire for this open day of rest.

The mission work is done in teams on site for the intermediate seven days. Teams will be split based on skill, desire and need and can be cross-trained in multiple areas. The first six days constitute the educational piece of the program. Mornings are reserved for the health education program, where prevention and treatment will be taught focusing on those illnesses most prevalent in that community. After this session the clinic is open for medical treatment for the remainder of the work day until 5pm. We treat for basic illnesses focusing again on those most affecting the region. We will also offer a breakout health session around 3pm focusing more in depth on women’s health issues, pregnancy and midwifery.

LEADERSHIP TRAINING.

Sessions are offered daily on leadership. Earlier in the day, two separate sessions will teach leadership skills, one will focus on church leaders and the other on youth training. We feel this is an important part of community growth and will also help in the training of our health care professionals as they continue to spread the word of health and faith in their communities. In the evening we offer prayer sessions and bible study for anyone in the community to attend.

The seventh day of the educational part of the program is unique in that the weekly programs finish and we plan a larger community event. During the day we will have the clinic open for all who still need medical care. Once we close the clinic, we want to close the trip formally with a ceremony, which we call a “crusade.” A crusade in this sense is a religious gathering where the entire community will be invited out to pray and fellowship together. We will also announce to the community those who have completed the training programs, recognized their efforts and encouraged the public to engage in their sessions to follow.

KAPSIRCHOI FAITH CLINIC OFFERING PRIMARY CARE SINCE 2011
I care Grace International conducted the first medical mission of its own kind to Kapsabet County in Kenya in 2011. A team of 16 missionaries from USA that included Medical Doctors, Registered Nurses, Occupational therapists, Mental health professionals and religious leaders and paved the way for future medical missionaries to Kenya. The team raised $10,000 to support a community health center project that was named Kapsirchoi AIC Faith Clinic. With support from the missionaries from USA, the county government of Nandi and local churches, the Faith clinic that was build provide comprehensive primary care services to a population of over 15,000 in Nandi County.

I CARE GRACE COMMUNITY HOSPITAL -NANDI COUNTY

I Care Grace International’s mission is to improve access to healthcare in the rural communities specifically. We are seeking for funding for a 16-Bed Community Health Hospital in Nandi County.

Background

Eldoret is the third largest city in Kenya. It has a large hospital in the developed part of the city. Individuals that have enough money are able to receive treatment from this major hospital. Close to Eldoret, we have a smaller town called Kapsabet. This city has a population over 60,000 people that only have access to one small district that holds less than 80 beds. The large hospital in Eldoret is not able to provide services to more than 60,000 individuals that live outside of their jurisdiction.

There is a major need for this population of over 60,000 individuals that live in the country side to receive medical treatment. Location and a very low income setting for this population are creating a barrier for treatment. There are individuals that are able to work in healthcare in healthcare positions in the area. They are credentialed and can be available to work as staff for a health center as soon as possible. Funding for a new health center would provide economic growth in the form of employment for staff, community engagement, and a healthier population.
