The Clinic facilities within the Home are vital to maintaining the health of the children who are infected with HIV and are on the necessary drug regimes which require constant monitoring by health professionals. The Tumaini Charitable Clinic is a recent project development, funded in partnership with Rotary International and Mombasa Rotary. The aim of this clinic is to provide complete primary health care services on subsidized rates. Out-patient care to the local community includes consultation, examination and dispensing of medicines and injections. A nominal fee is charged for consultations, making the clinic particularly accessible to the lower income groups in Bamburi district. A Management Committee was set up to manage the day to day running of the clinic. The task for this committee will be to run the clinic on a non-profit basis.
Our focus at Tumaini Homes of Hope has always been to secure long-term sustainable funding for the welfare of the children now and in the future. Now that the home is complete, with welfare facilities close at hand, and in receipt of support locally and internationally, we have committed to taking care of the education of every child presently living in the home for the next 10 years; what better way to make a difference to a child’s life than to educate them!
