About the project

The Challenge

An estimated 500, 000 Kenyans are living with diabetes with 60% unaware of their status. However, under the non-communicable disease programme over 2,000 persons were screened for blood sugar where 429 children tested positive for diabetes. A further 283 children are being trained on management of diabetes.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation has invested KES 12 million in the construction of the modern child friendly diabetic clinic.

The Impact

The clinic has been equipped with modern equipment for diabetes detection and management for children. Patients from Garissa and other counties such Kitui, Tana River, Isiolo and Wajir can access the facility for medical services. This is expected to increase awareness in the community on diabetes and diabetes management.
