Healthcare

the challenge

Despite the presence of a healthcare system, certain barriers hinder residents from accessing adequate medical care, including limited accessibility due to geographical remoteness and inadequate infrastructure, financial constraints making healthcare services expensive, and potential inadequacies in quality and availability of facilities and personnel.

Our Response

In response to the healthcare challenge within the LUMO community wildlife conservancy, a collaborative effort has been initiated between the conservancy, Sunworld Safaris, Community & Wildlife Conservation, and Ol Malaika Trust. Together, we have established a program to provide free medical services to the community at the grassroots level. Through bi-annual medical camps held every year, doctors are dispatched to the community to offer a range of medical services completely free of charge. This initiative aims to address the gaps in healthcare accessibility and affordability, ensuring that all members of the community have access to essential medical care regardless of financial constraints. By leveraging partnerships and mobilizing resources, we are committed to improving the overall health and well-being of the LUMO community.

our impact

Over the past 3 years, a total of 6 medical camps have been organized, providing free medical services to the community. During these camps, at least 80 individuals were treated, resulting in a total of over 480 people receiving essential medical care.
