More than 300 patients have benefited from a free medical camp conducted by doctors from the United States of America (USA) and the Beryl’s Medical Centre in Oyugis, Rachuonyo South Sub-County.
The programme was organized by God Will Provide, a non-governmental organisation, in partnership with Beryl’s Medical Centre.
Speaking to the media, Dr Anastacia Romacio, from the USA said they were humbled to be part of the team providing services to Kenyans ailing from various conditions.
“I am happy because we have managed to treat many people with different health conditions like Malaria, Typhoid and dental conditions,” Romacio said.
Mary Ong’ou a beneficiary from East Kamagak Ward, praised the system of service provision by the team which she said was efficient and orderly.
“I appreciate the medics for their quality services which is better than those offered in our local hospitals,” Ong’ou said.
Lucy Mumbi, a Clinical Officer at Beryl’s Medical Centre, encouraged couples to embrace family planning, noting that birth control services were available in the medical camp.
She highlighted that they also offered outpatient consultation, lab services, dental services and wellness clinics where patients can do checkups on blood pressure and blood sugar level.
“We are glad to serve the people of Homa Bay County and I would like to encourage our people to embrace family planning to improve the standards of living in the house holds,” Mumbi said.
