Kimilili in known in the area for having a decent hospital. Well decent compared to everywhere else relatively close by. Kenyans come from miles away to use its facilities as it actually have a place where they can perform relatively complex surgeries. One being C-section. We spent a lot of time in the maternity ward handing out donated clothes and other items to new borns and mothers.
This baby was only a few hours old. His mother had become very ill after giving birth and was having a lot of treatment while we were there. Child birth can be a big killer in Kenya and the work they are doing here is trying to help combat this.
