The Big Heart Foundation financed the operation of a medical clinic for an entire year at the Kakuma refugee camp, intending to offer essential healthcare services to refugees, asylum seekers, and the local community. This funding encompassed the costs of mandatory vaccination programs for measles, polio, and tetanus, as well as the procurement of medical equipment and supplies, and the organization of educational activities. Additionally, it facilitated health and community awareness events, enhanced the clinic’s capacity to accommodate more patients, and appointed 20 additional medical staff to attend to patients.
