Rotarians Treating Children At The Mukuru In Nairobi

This report and photos are from Merrimack Valley Rotarian Carl Good, who is on a Rotary mission in Kenya with 70 other people. The goal of the mission is to help people impacted by AIDS.

These pictures show some of the treatments being provided by the Medical teams. Children had their teeth extracted under rather primitive but effective conditions. However, a few children were very reluctant to see the dentist and held on tight to the first thing that was available. For very young children a graphical eye chart was used. One evening we were hosted at the house to the Deputy U.S. ambassador and the U.S. ambassador spoke to us at a reception hosted by the Rotary district chairman. please see the pictures.
