Timboni Community Dispensary


      

The Timboni community dispensary was founded by community members in Timboni. It is a small health center run and managed by the community members. Mama Christine is in charge of the clinic, supported by a medical doctor’s receptionist and a lab assistant. The dispensary treats common medical problems, treats wounds, does tests and prescribes medicine. There is also a delivery room in the dispensary.


Once a week a social worker comes to the center to have discussions with people living with HIV & AIDS. She has individual and group sessions with them and she helps them to run a bead making project to generate income. A well-known center for HIV & AIDS visits the dispensary also once a week to conduct medical tests, distribute anti-retroviral drugs and give information and advice.

  • Register clients

Testimonials

Jethro Arts Everything was great and arranged perfectly and professionally. The contact by mail before we travelled to Kenya was clear and easy. The pick up from the airport was without any problems. The introduction day in Kilifi was great as well. Still thanks to Everlyn and the student who has learned us (a couple of words) Swahili. Special thanks to Cocky for her commitment and everything she has done for us. We like to do voluntary work with Kenya Xperience! again.
Jurriaan Wesselink Ik (heb) veel gezien, gedaan en, onbewust, veel geleerd. Het was echt top en ik weet niet hoe ik kan zeggen hoe ik de organisatie kan bedanken, zonder deze  organisatie was het niet zo gelukt! Echt top. Dit nemen ze me nooit meer af.
Elize van Dalsen My experience with Kenya Xperience! could not have been better.
