HOPE agent Out of the Ashes works in Kitale, Kenya, providing free medical care, training, and couseling services to those in need. 

Out of the Ashes began in 2009 by treating minor cuts, abrasions and burns for those living on the streets. The demand for medical care continued to increase and in 2011 a small shack was rented to offer additional services. Over the years the clinic has evolved into a modern setting with three Kenyans on staff and diverse volunteers. The clinic treats approximately 800 patients each month. The staff also provide regular medical outreaches into remote areas where there are no doctors or clinics available.

We are currently raising funds

  • to build a new clinic that will meet the medical needs of the community better than the exisiting rented space
  • to purchase a mobile clinic vehicle to service those living in remote areas

By bringing people to full health, they become enabled to contribute to the welfare of their own families and communities.

Project Updates

  • We’d like to introduce you to one of our new HOPE agents operating in Kitale, Kenya. ‘Out of the Ashes’ provides free medical care, training, and counseling services to those in need.

     

    Kitale, Kenya has a poverty rate of 60%; in some areas it can climb as high as 90%. While many people try to create a sustainable income through farming, the land has been subdivided to the point where it’s next to impossible for many residents who now find themselves with so little land that they’re not able to escape the cycle of poverty.

     

    Launching in 2009, Out of the Ashes started out by treating minor cuts, abrasions, and burns for those living on the streets of Kitale. With the continuing demand for medical care, the organization expanded in 2011, renting a small shack in order to offer additional services.

     

    Since that time, the clinic has continued to evolved, taking on a more modern setting and now has three Kenyans on staff along with a group of diverse volunteers. The clinic now treats approximately 800 patients per month, and has created a positive impact on the health and wellness of the community.

     

    The staff are also able to provide regularly scheduled medical outreaches to remote areas to care for people who don’t have access to doctors or local clinics.

     

    We are currently raising funds for Out of the Ashes to support:

     

    - the construction of a new clinic that will meet the medical needs of the community better than the existing rented space

    - the purchase of a mobile clinic vehicle to service those living in remote areas
