Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

MOS Kenya assist the poor population of the coast province of Kenya, by offering quality and affordable orthopedic surgery and training of health care professionals

What is your project and how will it help?

Now:
The project has now been running since over a year and consists of training, outpatient clinics and surgeries in 4 different District Hospitals as well as acting as the consultant orthopaedic surgeon for the APDK Rehabilitation Clinic in Mombasa. APDK has a well organized outreach project, whereby a team visits remote places in Coast Province on a regular basis to look for children (and adults) with disabilities. They are then referred to the Port Reitz Rehabilitation Center. Some patients, like hydrocephalus/spine bifida cases and some complex orthopaedic cases (which I can’t operate) are then referred to Kijabe Hospital and others are operated by me. In the hospitals south of Mombasa, I deal mostly with adult patients with limb fractures. After I found the SIGN organization, I can now offer patients with femur and tibia fractures a state of the art operating technique and I can deliver it at no extra cost for the patients.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

- volunteer orthopedic surgeons, theater nurses, residents who want to work with me
- funding of my project
- donation of orthopedic implants and instruments

Please detail the resources that you need.

I currently have a small sponsorship, but don’t know how long it will last.
The full annual budget of my project is about 50.000€
