Diabetes Youth Camps

In memory of the late Mrs Eva Muchemi, the Safaricom Foundation sponsored a three day
Diabetes Youth Camp (DYC) in Nakuru County.

The Safaricom Foundation is one of the strategic partners to the Kenya Diabetes Management &
Information Centre (DMI Centre). They have successfully sponsored DYCs and medical camps
across the country as well as The DMI Annual Diabetes Walk. This partnership has been in
existence since the year 2005 and continues to flourish.

The three-day camp successfully hosted about 30 children and their parents/guardians and was
held in June 2021 at the Stem Hotel, Lanet Nakuru County. The camp was a success due to our
continued partnership with the Ministry of Health, Nakuru County Health Department, Novo
Nordisk, CHEM Labs and the Association of Kenya Insurers (AKI)

The DMI provided the highly qualified interdisciplinary medical team to:

  • Offer Psychosocial counseling and support.
  • Offer training on Diabetes management and self-care.
  • Conduct Optical, Dental, Foot care and HbA1c tests on all children present.

It has been one year since “Mama J” left us to be with the Lord on 18th June, 2020. (The live stream/ link will be www.evamuchemi.com)

We thank God for the years and memories we shared, and remember her as a loving wife and cherished mother, sister, aunt, cucu and friend to many. A woman of great faith, exceptional humility, grace, and loving kindness.

There will be a Memorial Service & Unveiling of the Cross ceremony to be held at the family Tubania Farm, Kimathi Location, Nyeri County on Friday, 18th June, 2021, starting from 11.00am.

Due to the current MoH covid-19 protocols, in-person attendance is limited. The service will be live-streamed on www.evamuchemi.com for family and friends who would have wished to be in attendance

Eva was a champion supporter of children living with diabetes, and in her memory (in lieu of flowers), the family will appreciate your kind donation to the Kenya Diabetes Management and Information (DMI) Centre public awareness initiative through Pay-bill No.: 928100, Account Name: Eva’s Charity.

A life well lived is a precious gift of hope, strength and grace.

May her gentle soul rest in eternal peace. Amen! Matt.5:8 – Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
