Waithaka Clinic

Kibera and Waithaka clinics are continued on a monthly basis with follow ups during the week of those persons who need an MRI or CT scan.  These are performed at Plaza Imaging Services at General Accident house at a special rate for ANDREF patients.  The Neurology Centre at General Accident house also performs EEG’s for ANDREF patients at a discounted rate.

The KMTC provide Physiotherapists who treat children who suffer from contractures or disability resulting from Cerebral Palsy or injury.  Often these children suffer from Epilepsy and they are referred to the ANDREF clinic for further treatment.  The Physiotherapists play a vital role in observing and referring patients.

Martin Wandaka

martin wandaka Martin Wandaka has been a long term patient with the Waithaka Clinic. His parents have been very supportive, however he sometimes has a seizure if he develops an infection. He sustained this black eye the last time he had a seizure. ANDREF has funded a CT scan and EEG in the past to make sure that there is no other underlying condition. He continues to get his medicines funded by ANDREF.
