Turkana, Kenya - Medical Micro Team
Thousands of children attend our partnering Missions of Hope schools in the Turkana region. The need for medical care is great for these children and their families. Daily you will don your scrubs and care for hundreds who wait patiently in line to be seen. Basic medical care is virtually unheard of for the average person living there. You will be working in our schools throughout the region. Your primary patients will be the children and families of those that attend the Mission of Hope schools. Our medical team will be led by Troy Mayer, a licensed EMT and county Sheriff, who will be traveling with the rest of our teams to Africa this summer. Joining a micro team like this means you will spend your days doing what you have been trained to do… you and your team will use your skill set and perform a service that will restore health in the name of Christ to those in need. Your trip to Kenya will end with an amazing two-day safari seeing the animals of the Serengeti/Masai Mara plains.
