The coronavirus is a serious public health emergency, but it is not the only primary health challenge facing Kibera. At CFK, we are taking action to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic in Kibera while continuing to maintain critical healthcare services. Our Tabitha Medical Clinic remains open, but we have limited patient numbers, implemented a mask policy, and setaside an isolation room for potential coronavirus cases. We have also provided our staff with robust training and essential personal protective equipment (PPE).
