With our support Malindi Palliative Care Centre in eastern Kenya are developing their patient care in the community.
The centre serves the whole of Kalifi County and its population of over one million. Community care is essential to ensure that the poorest, and those living far from the centre, are reached with palliative care when they need it. Since March the team has been providing regular home-care for 57 new patients.
“I appreciate your visit, it is so encouraging. It is so humbling that Malindi health workers visit us in our home. Please come again”, a patient from Malindi Palliative Care Centre.
They have also established a support group which now has 46 members and meets regularly, essential for patients to share experiences and receive support.
