We are supporting the Bochoroke Village Self Help Group Project
The aim of this project is to assist the small 4,500 strong community of Bochoroke to access the basic rights to medicine, education, and clean water supplies. The Dispensary will allow local access to vital medicine – for which people would have travelled 10+ miles previously.
The remote Bochoroke village is located in the recently established Masaba North District in the newly created Nyamira County in Western Kenya. Statistics for the village indicate the cataclysmic depth and extent of poverty:
The major killer diseases in the village are easily and cheaply preventable diseases like malaria, anaemia, pneumonia, meningitis, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, measles and gastroenteritis.
