In June The Kilgoris Project held their first medical clinics. A team from the USA partnered with a local doctor to host medical clinics at schools in four communities. For many communities, this was the first time a doctor had ever visited the area. The team treated more than 300 children, parents, and community members. While most of the patients had common issues like ring worm (potentially fatal in children if left untreated), cuts, and infections, some had more serious conditions like TB, malaria, and HIV/AIDS that were able to be referred for ongoing care.
Medical clinics are an addition toThe Kilgoris Project's ongoing efforts to improve overall community health by providing clean water, deworming, nutrition, and hand washing stations at the schools.
