Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – COVID 19 Response

Early last week, CFK’s Clinic Staff and Community Health Volunteers received training from the CDC (pictured here). They are putting that training to work debunking myths and promoting positive hygiene education throughout the community. Staff are installing handwashing stations throughout Kibera and are now expanding to individual households.

As with many regions globally, Kenya faces a severe shortage of medical protective gear for frontline responders. We were fortunate to have Susan Tilson, a good Samaritan and social entrepreneur based in Nairobi, offer her services to locally manufacture high-quality, reusable face masks. This weekend, CFK received our first shipment of 800 masks with another 200 on the way. Susan made a lovely video that shows the process.
