Real Life

Delivering Health and Hope to Kenya - Freda and Richard Robinson founded Sister Freda's Medical Centre in Kitale, Kenya, to provide health services for the poor. Today, the Centre is the only facility that serves this rural population of 500,000 with a small hospital, an outpatient clinic, a nursing school, a school with a feeding program for hundreds of local children and a mobile clinic that visits surrounding slums. Sister Freda's especially needed incubators for newborns, a delivery table, a generator, mattresses, surgical instruments, dental tools and additional hospital beds to be able to accept and care for more patients.

In June 2013, a semi-trailer-sized cargo container arrived from Project C.U.R.E. carrying $358,284 in medical donations for Sister Freda's and equipment for the science laboratory at a nearby orphanage high school. The shipment was entirely made possible by the contributions of individual donors to Project C.U.R.E.. The medical supplies and equipment delivered are helping Sister Freda and her medical staff provide quality care and treatment to nearly 5,000 patients, mostly women and children, seen each year.

In October 2013, a team of medical volunteers from Project C.U.R.E. traveled to Sister Freda's Medical Centre to assist the staff with patient care and provide neonatal resuscitation training to the students at Sister Freda's nursing school. With support from Ronald McDonald House Charities, Project C.U.R.E. is teaching life-saving neonatal resuscitation techniques through the American Academy of Pediatrics' Helping Babies Breathe program that will reduce newborn mortality and give the babies born at Sister Freda's a healthy start to life.
