Story

Nine volunteers from MGF in Kilkeel will be travelling to Nyeri in Kenya in October 2018 to provide help and support to the work of The Metropolitan Sanctuary in Kenya. The Sanctuary provides medical care and support to the local community and general public in the Nyeri region and all services are free of charge. Services include general medical care; orthotics and prosthetics; physical and occupational therapy, disability day care, home visits and a 24hr Rescue Centre.

Living with a disability in an area already affected by poverty and a lack of facilities is incredibly difficult. Often with little access to healthcare due to a lack of money, children with disabilities in rural Kenya frequently have to be left at home while their parents or grandparents go out to work. Without any other way of ensuring their safety during the day, these children can be locked up for hours at a time. Due to a lack of material resources, they are often found lying on the floor as proper seating is in short supply. The Metropolitan Sanctuary seeks to improve quality of life for such children and their families, providing them with medical care, therapy and postural aids, as well as access to our day care facilities.

One of the most exciting services The Sanctuary offers is free assessment for and provision of individually-tailored orthotic devices such as spinal jackets and leg braces, and splints such as callipers, ankle-foot orthosis, knee-ankle-foot orthosis, and even prosthetic limbs. Very few, if any, places in the Central Province of Kenya offer such equipment free of charge to the community.

'MGF- Team Kenya' will be volunteering their help with this valuable work in Nyeri and four of the volunteers will also be climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, to raise awareness of the work and to raise funds for this important cause. 'MGF - Team Kenya' want to contribute to the care and support of those who are in need, we hope you can help us to achieve this.
