What: Surgical Mission Trip
When: Friday, November 3, 2017 – Wednesday, November 15, 2017
In Nandi County access to qualified surgeons and hygienic surgery procedures are typically only afforded by the wealthy in the society. The future goal of Weaver Family Clinic is to ensure that a variety of quality surgical services are available and accessible, regardless of the beneficiary’s ability to pay. The US volunteer team will work in Nandi County in collaboration with their medical staff and AIC Litein Hospital to do general surgeries, hernia repairs, tumor removals, cleft lip and palate repairs and many more. There will be opportunities to provide training for local surgeons and clinical staff to help strengthen the provision of continued care in Nandi and Kericho counties.
