Mukuru Kwa Njenga is just one of the many slums in Nairobi. Due to the poor road conditions, we had to walk our way into the school where the free clinic is held. Leading the way in front of us are armed guards and a school teacher.

Our first day of work involves transporting and unpacking of the supplies, which includes all sorts of medications for the clinic and stationeries for the children.

The classrooms are ill-equipped. Students typically sit on the bare floor. Textbooks are usually provided by the school and shared among the classmates.

A grateful patient who came back to thank us for the medications. He suffered from spinal cord injury and could not stand up straight due to pain. Our drugs helped eased his pain and gave him much needed confidence.

Pastor James has been preaching about love and contributing to the local community for years. I have to salute him for the long term efforts in educating the young children of Kenya.
