Since last year Amref's mobile clinics - a solar-powered trailer with refrigerated vaccines and medicines – have taken trained health workers and vital services direct to people in isolated communities in Kenya.

Now, with your help, they could be the frontline for tackling the next major health challenge in Kenya: the rise of chronic health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer. 

Amref's mobile clinics bring lifesaving healthcare to communities

For people like Phanice Kwamboka (pictured), suffering from diabetes, the mobile clinics are life-changing. Phanice is a mother of four from Barani village, Mombasa County in Kenya. Before Amref's intervention, Phanice's diabetes meant she was not well enough to work, rendering her unable to earn money to keep her family afloat. She had to choose between buying food for her children, or medicine to treat her diabetes.

Phanice explained: "Getting medication for diabetes is not easy for me because of the high cost of buying them. And even the distance to the hospital where I can get the medicine is very far. Even getting 200 shillings (approx. £1.30) to go there, I cannot afford it.”

Now, Amref's clinics are bringing medication, treatment and advice from trained health workers to Phanice's community, allowing her to manage her condition and keep healthy enough to work. Amref is bringing healthcare to communities like Phanice's across Africa - who struggle to access health services because of the shortage of health workers, lack of local clinics or long distances to hospitals, and the cost of services. Amref is making sure that the most vulnerable people get access to the vital health services they need.

Amref's mobile clinics bring lifesaving healthcare to communities

We have an ambitious goal to increase our fleet to bring this lifeline to more communities. With thousands of dedicated people like you in our community, we hope it’s possible.
