Our vision for the Children’s Hospital is to develop a centre of excellence and provide affordable healthcare in the region. We have always held the notion that sick children should be cared for by trained pediatricians providing quality care. We will continue to strive to achieve this endeavor.
The Department of Pediatrics has been involved with several CSR activities over the past 2 years.
We have worked with two international congenital heart teams, Medical Education and Aid to Kenya (MEAK) /Evelina London Children’s Hospital and Healing Little Hearts/Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
Together we have had 4 missions so far, successfully performing 35 open heart operations and 22 interventional cardiac repairs for needy children at no cost to their families. We hope to continue these missions at least 3 times a year. Our hospital’s pediatric ENT team regularly visits schools in the area offering free ENT advice and we are looking forward to starting up a cleft palate repair program in the near future.
