Muntada Aid is delighted to announce that our team will be travelling to Kenya in December for our second Little Hearts mission in the country this year.
The mission will take place between 13-17th of December at Coast General hospital Mombasa. We are aiming to treat 30-40 children during this deployment.
During our first deployment in Kenya, our team carried out 35 interventions earlier in July 2021.
"During our first mission, we found that there is a greater need for such deployments in Kenya. Mombasa is home to over a million people with no paediatric interventional care available to children. Our long-term objective is to build human resources capacity in Kenya so that local doctors can carry out these interventions, " said Kabir Miah, Programmes Manager at Muntada Aid.
Since 2012, the Little Heart team has travelled to 10 different countries carrying out over 22,00 operations and interventions on children. The mission to Kenya will be our 35th deployment.
