The Small Project started 2019 off in a big way! In 2018, we successfully raised enough money to fund not one but TWO mobile camel clinics operated by the Kenyan organization, Communities Health Africa Trust (CHAT)!
This March I set off to Kenya for a change of scenery and a clear mind. I am a registered nurse working in a busy downtown emergency room in Toronto. Like many of my colleagues, I was feeling overworked, under-recognized, and on a straight track to burn out. I decided I needed some self-care and do something I always want to do: volunteer with an organization in Africa.
A Kenyan organization, Community Health Africa Trust’s (CHAT) mobile clinics provide integrated health services to rural communities throughout central and northern Kenya. Over 80% of the people living in these communities have little or no access to other health services.
