Having just returned from another hugely successful humanitarian trip I’m now trying to put my experiences into words.

We saw 1500 patients in 2 weeks, sometimes treating up to 350 patients in a day. Read on to find out about the places we visited and some of the incredible patients we treated.

Emma's Kenya Update 2015

Just a week back from my humanitarian trip to Kenya, and I’m now finding time to reflect. It was a hugely challenging experience, but such a successful trip, with over 2000 patients receiving our help!

I finally have some wifi so can send an update! All is well, we have spent 2 days in Makindu at the hospital and at an orphanage seeing such a variety of cases. The 2 standout cases was of one 27 year old women who 'broke' my blood pressure monitor as her BP was off the scale! She had no idea how serious the condition was as we sent her straight to the hospital in an ambulance! The other case was of a 10month baby, severely disabled and likely severe genetic abnormality. He was the size of a 3 month old, dehydrated, floppy, and unresponsive. The mother had no idea and thought we could treat him or at least the hospital could. It was one of the hardest conversations I've had with a patient, telling the mother there was no hope of recovery.
Today we are now in Kimana, it's hot and we are in sight of Kilimanjaro! Looking forward to seeing the girls at the rescue centre!!

Having all but written off Kenya 2015 due to family commitments, I am so excited to report that through a fortuitous stroke of luck, all the dates have aligned and we are going!

Just back from my third humanitarian trip to Kenya, I am now putting my thoughts and experiences into words!

This trip felt quite adventurous and experimental, with missions into unknown territories, extensive travel and unplanned accommodation! And not least, that I was taking my 12 year old son, George, with me for the first time! The youngest volunteer the charity has ever had!
