Kenya Defence Forces Holds A Free Medical Camp In Nanyuki
The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) conducted a free Medical Camp on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at Likii Health Centre in Nanyuki, Central Kenya, as a precursor to the KDF DAY 2022.
KDF medics offered various medical services, which included: General Outpatients services, Beyond Zero Cervical Cancer Screening, Dental treatment, Eye treatment, Child welfare & nutrition, Comprehensive Care Clinic (CCC) services, and Health promotion talks.
The Officer in Charge, Lieutenant Colonel Julius Mghanga, said that the turn-up was higher than expected, and it was encouraging to assist fellow citizens.
Mr. Mark Maroko, the administrator at Likii Health Centre, thanked KDF for collaborating with the County Government to avail the free medical camp. He indicated that "the free medical camp has played a big role since most of the services offered today were not available at the health center."
Residents of Likii were grateful to KDF and appreciated the free medical services. Mr. Antony Munyiri, a local resident, said, "it is difficult to get free medical services out there," and requested KDF to do more free medical camps.
KDF also donated sanitary towels to Likii Primary School, a rehabilitation centre for street children.
KDF Day is an annual event on the military's calendar to commemorate the valor and sacrifice of fallen heroes.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
