We continue to face various challenges, for instance from our 2016 year-end Free Camp, we identified the financial issue that although patients were encouraged to enroll for National Hospital Insurance Fund with M-TIBA, many could not afford the 200/- shillings equivalent of $2 required for registration and monthly subscription!
Also, many people were referred to Sagam Hospital for follow-up but for lack of transport and money, they are not able to go. We need urgent funds and donations to assist our community-in-need and assisting them to get medicine or treatment for their ailments.
We call upon our readers to donate or partner with us to provide these needy senior citizens and youth with medical care.
We are excited to invite you to the second installment of the Stand up For Kenya (“S.UP Kenya”) comedy fundraiser. The event will take place on December 15, 2023, in New York City, and is dedicated to raising funds for Sagam Community Hospital!
Venue: Midnight Theatre (75 Manhattan West Plaza, New York, NY 10001). Doors open at 8:45 PM, please be checked in by 9:15 PM.
Since 1998, Sagam Community Hospital has provided healthcare to the rural communities, and neighboring villages of Siaya County, Kenya. Dr. Khama Rogo founded the hospital to solve a problem he witnessed during his upbringing in Siaya: individuals and families, lacking status or economic capacity, being denied healthcare in the big cities, and consequently experiencing unnecessary pain and sickness. Having dedicated his life to enhancing global healthcare access, Dr. Rogo built Sagam Community Hospital to provide the community with quality health care, comparable to big city hospitals.
The funds raised from this event will directly assist the hospital as it embarks on updating its imaging and dental units. The funds will also support endoscopic services at the healthcare facility.
S.UP Kenya is partnering with The Kesia Nyawara International Foundation (KNIF), a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit corporation to collect donations. For more information on our partner, please visit https://www.kesianyawarainternationalfoundation.org/.
Donations to the cause can directly be made at: https://www.kesianyawarainternationalfoundation.org/donate.html.
ALL DONATIONS OF ANY AMOUNTS ARE APPRECIATED.
