Patients waiting outside the Kibera Clinic

The Kibera Clinic is held once a  month, nearly thirty persons are treated on the first Wednesday of the month. Medications, advice and educational support are given and new patients are referred for investigations, which are carried out at Nairobi Hospital.  Here is some information on just some of the patients.

Victor Mukirima

Victor Mukirima

Victor Mukirima has attended the Kibera Clinic for over one year. He presented with uncontrolled Epilepsy and previously he sustained severe burns on his left hand. He was prescribed AED’s by Mr. Oluoch Olunya but he also added Ritalin 0.5mgs bd and this combination had kept him stable. His mother is a Mboga/Mtumba seller and the father is absent. Therefore his social situation is precarious. He presented again at the August Clinic and had developed status epilepticus due to a chest infection. He had been hospitalised at the Kenyatta National Hospital for one week. NFSS urged to observe his social conditions carefully
so that he can be more effectively cared for.

Mary Wambui

On 5th May, the Clinic in Kibera was well attended and Moses Waweru was there from Youth on the Move. It has helped the patients so much to be counseled by Moses. He also lives with Epilepsy and is best placed to understand the
challenges that the patients face. Mary Wambui is also pictured. She has a very supportive family and hopes to get good grades at school and become a nurse.

Anthony Kuria

Anthony Kuria

Anthony Kuria is a long term patient at Kibera and has a very caring family. He has been seriously challenged with his Epilepsy and ANDREF has funded his medications for a number of years. He was unfortunate to contract a very
severe case of Chicken Pox and was so unwell. He was seen in the office of Dr. Mauro Saio at Nairobi Hospital and prescribed the appropriate medication to alleviate his discomfort. Dr. Saio saw Anthony for free and we are very grateful for his time and expertise.

Caleb Otiti

Caleb Otiti

Caleb Otiti was recommended to the ANDREF Clinic by friends and he came in 2014. He was suffering from a strain on his jaw when he had a seizure this was initially thought to be a dislocation. ANDREF sponsored the xrays and
it was found that he did not need an operation and his condition has resolved. He continues to receive medication from ANDREF.
