Country: Kenya

Location: Shikunga

Total Budget: $24,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Building of a medical clinic in Shikunga, Kenya


The North Platte Noon Rotary Club, along with several other District 5630 partnering Rotary Clubs and individual donors are raising funds to build a medical clinic in the remote village of Shikunga, in western Kenya. This is the poorest area of that country and NP Rotarian Dr. Kim Baxter, who is an optometrist, has traveled to this village for two eye care missions (most recently with DGE Bob Mayber) and another time in conjunction with a $136,000 District 5630 Global Grant to provide updated equipment and medical training for the neonatal/maternity wing of the nearby Kakamega County Hospital.

It is estimated that this new medical clinic can be built in Shikunga for roughly $24,000 and it will provide a wide variety of medical services to the impoverished people of that area, including eye care, dental and other medical care of various specialties. There are currently no such medical facilities or services available within a large area around Shikunga, so we know that many of the surrounding villages in this very poor, rural area of Kakamega County will be served by this new medical clinic we propose to build. Realistically, this project will likely take 2-3 years to complete, requiring pooling of our District Grants throughout this same time period.

Once the construction of the building is completed, we anticipate being able to furnish and equip it mostly with donated medical equipment and supplies, with the remainder to be purchased through added donations. We also plan to establish a small foundation to provide ongoing funding for staffing, supplies, and maintenance of equipment to ensure long-term sustainability for this medical clinic.

See attached spreadsheet for itemized project costs.

Club members will be involved with fundraising, securing donated medical equipment and work on the clinic and within the village.
