Healthcare & Medical

Offer an extra pair of hands as a healthcare volunteer in Africa where a small act of kindness will go a long way. Your assistance can have a life-changing effect on the vulnerable, ill and over-burdened communities in Kenya.

Kenmed11

Public health facilities in Kenya are faced with numerous challenges, including under-staffing, lack of equipment and resources, operating without sufficient doctors and with few structures in place to efficiently give services to patients. African Impact partners with a number of clinics in the community, where medical volunteers can gain insight into Kenyan healthcare alongside medical professionals.

Health Awareness Clubs are also run at various schools and old age homes. African Impact, together with its partners, have been able to convert unused space into a waiting bay for patients at Karuri Health Center as well as renovating the counseling room, staff room, ante/post-natal clinic and maternity ward.

The Kikuyu Hospital will soon have a completed pediatric ward through the projects efforts. The healthcare volunteer project has also had a great impact at a local school for children with intellectual disabilities by building a vegetable garden to help improve the children’s’ diet, donating a dairy cow, building a cowshed, and refurbishing the water supply area.  

As a volunteer in Kenya, you will acquire knowledge, share skills, and build relationships.  Your medical background will determine your placement at the various public health centres’ or hospitals, and to assist us in planning for your placement, we ask that volunteers send through details of their healthcare experience, qualifications and/or current university course.

During this work and volunteer experience, you will come to a new understanding of what constitutes a basic need between this culture and your own. You will realise that a smile costs nothing but means the world in encouragement and that you are capable of achieving far more than you ever thought possible.

Kihara Hospital

Kihara Hospital is a public hospital providing care in the Kiambaa Sub County and offers a range of outpatient services, including HIV and TB testing, Occupational therapy, Physiotherapy, Family planning and a Dental Unit. Inpatient departments include male, female and children’s wards; and also a large maternity ward that supports approximately 150 births per month. There is a theatre for surgeries such as caesareans and also an x-ray department. Depending on the volunteers’ qualifications and level of experience they have the opportunity to observe and learn in all areas across the hospital and assist under supervision in certain departments.

Pcea kikuyu mission hospital

PCEA Kikuyu Mission Hospital

This is a large general hospital that offers medical care to the community regardless of whether they can afford their treatment or not. Doctors attend to around 350 patients a day with a variety of departments where you can be placed as a volunteer such as the maternity ward, orthopaedics, the HIV and diabetic clinic, nursing and emergency care. This hospital is also particularly well-known for its specialized eye unit.

Karuri hospital solely for qualified healthcare practitioners

Karuri Hospital – Solely for qualified healthcare practitioners

Karuri is a small government hospital with an out-patient unit, dental unit and maternity unit. Karuri also has a small lab. You will have great volunteer opportunities to learn about all units as well as present workshops for staff or patients.

Public health centres

Public Health Centres

There are a host of opportunities to gain observational experience, share knowledge with local qualified health professionals and learn about providing care with limited resources. You will be able to experience various departments including laboratory, maternity, paediatric and child-care units, comprehensive care clinic (HIV & TB patients), counselling, orthopaedics, administration, outpatient care and pharmacy. The exposure to healthcare care in an African country is certainly an eye-opener.

Orphanages preschools in limuru

Orphanages & Pre-schools in Limuru

Depending on the assistance required from the community you may be involved in teaching and support at local orphanages or pre-schools. Many of the orphaned and vulnerable children are developmentally delayed and need extra attention in order to promote their development. The children's ages range mainly between 4 and 15 years.

As a volunteer with children abroad you will help teach the children various art and sport activities that make creative use of their time and hone their hidden skills and talents. You will assist with general care such as cooking the childrens meals, offering moral support and guidance to the children, provide training in basic life skills and also be involved in general maintenance where needed to expand and improve the facilities.

Things to do in your spare time
Volunteer Activities

Volunteer event nights happen weekly on a Thursday were you can participate with fellow volunteers in quiz nights, watch movies, and enjoy a barbecue. There are basketball, tennis, and volleyball facilities as well as some great walking and running nature trails near the volunteer house.

Local Activities

You can conveniently take daytrips into Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city to do some shopping, experience the local city culture, see an elephant orphanage, a giraffe sanctuary and visit some of the best restaurants in East Africa.

Wildlife

Wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson's gazelle migrate into and occupy the Mara reserve, from the Serengeti plains during July to October. Experiencing this ‘Great Migration’ of thousands of animals is a site of a lifetime. You can even experience it in a hot air balloon for something quite extravagant.

All members of the "Big Five" (lion, leopard, African elephant, African buffalo, and Black Rhino) are found in the Masai Mara and make for an unforgettable African Safari experience.

Beach

Kenya’s beautiful coast is certainly a hidden treasure providing surfing, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing and other water sports.

Great Rift Valley

The Great Rift Valley is a highlight of any trip to Kenya. Presenting remarkable scenery with volcanoes along its lengths and many great lakes, there is an array of wildlife to explore on foot, horseback or in a game drive vehicle.

Feedback from our volunteers
Carly Matte, Canada

I would definitely recommend African Impact to others who are looking to volunteer. The staff are wonderful, the accommodations were excellent and I felt that I made a difference here.

Jill Armour, Australia

I can definitely say that my decision to volunteer with African Impact was the best thing I have ever decided to do. It was both rewarding and I was constantly learning about the people and their lives here. I also met some amazing people, volunteers, coordinators and staff of African Impact who I have loved spending time with and hope to keep in contact with in the future. I think this project has given me the perfect opportunity to see what life is really like in Kenya while still being able to see the sights on the weekends and enjoy the company of other volunteers.

Rebecca Hammersley, UK

The biggest impact this project has made on me has been on my medical perspective. I think the programs that African Impact offer have provided great insight into healthcare in the 3rd world and the experience has been invaluable.

Veronique Venne, Canadian

African Impact is the only one I will recommend to friends and family…and I will book through this organization for my next volunteer trip!
