CFK Healthcare Staff Featured as Frontline Heroes

CFK Community Health Volunteers walking in Kibera

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create new healthcare challenges and exacerbate existing ones, our staff are on the frontlines continuing to provide quality healthcare and support the Kibera community. As they and healthcare workers around the world are dedicating their lives to the support of others during this difficult time, it is critical that we recognize and thank them for their hard work. Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen parades, moments of silence, and entire cities coming together to celebrate their healthcare workers from home, and we have heard stories from frontline responders that have inspired us and given us hope.

Thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in partnership with Save the Children, Malaria No More, and Global Citizen, we have a new way to support and celebrate our healthcare workers. Many of our staff members were recently featured as “Frontline Heroes,” as part of an inspiring initiative that features firsthand video accounts from healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.
