In the Fall of 2013, the Jambo Kids Foundation successfully installed and opened a model healthcare clinic—the Jambo Kids Clinic. Now in our fourth year, we’re planning an upward expansion on the existing building to provide comprehensive health and wellness services for women. More information about the expansion can be found in our 2014 and 2015 Annual Report, click below.
Jambo Kids Foundation and YOU contribute to a healthy future for Lamu including improving both the health and education for the citizens of Lamu Island, part of the Kenyan coastline. Lamu is a chain of 7 islands covering 3,000 square miles. It is home to nearly 100,000 people, 50% of whom are children. And while Lamu Old Town is 800 years old and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and called “the oldest and best preserved Swahili settlement in East Africa,” it is poor. Healthcare opportunities are minimal.
