One Day Free Community Medical Camp

On 27 October 2012, Wiyumiririe Primary School, Laikipia East Constituency, was the venue of a one-day free community medical camp sponsored by the Safaricom Foundation and the Laikipia East Constituency Development Fund. More than 2500 community members attended the camp.

Random blood sugar screening of the camp attendees identified 15 people with diabetes previously not aware of their condition. These people were treated and referred to their local health facility for follow up.

Six of the 23 people with cataracts received cataract surgery while 25 of the 143 people with diabetes were treated for foot conditions. The dental clinic attended to 330 dental cases and performed 145 extractions!
