Wajir County, Kenya
Kenya Medical Mission 2022
We believe that in helping a community become self-sustainable, you must begin with providing healthcare.
UMR Kenya Medical Mission
UMR is devoted to improving primary and secondary healthcare across the world.
We are currently working in Wajir County, Kenya due to the number of people there suffering from lack of access to healthcare, proper sanitation, food, and more.
Our ultimate goal is to rebuild Wajir County until it becomes an efficient, self-sustainable community. And like we said, we believe that this begins with healthcare.
UMR consistently works in Wajir with the mission to provide as many people as possible with cataract surgeries and hearing aids.
What are Cataracts?
Deafness and Hearing Loss
Over 5% of the world’s population – or 432 million people – has disabling hearing loss. Hearing loss is very easily treatable through the installation of proper hearing aid devices.
Mission for vision
Those suffering from cataracts don’t just lose the ability to see the world and their loved ones – they also become incapable of performing daily tasks without assistance. This is not only difficult on family and friends, but it can also lead to isolation and a steady decline in one’s mental health.
Gift of Hearing
UMR provides hearing aids to children in need to ensure that they have the opportunity to lead a happy and healthy life.
On these medical trips, we are able to see our mission come to life in Wajir County.
But there are still many more children in need.
