Provide Medical Help
Abigail Ministries helps fund surgical operations and courses of treatment for people we support when it has been impossible for the family to raise the necessary funds for urgent medical treatment.
Future Plans – A First Aid Clinic
It may be a simple scratch but left untreated it could turn into a sinister tumour or if it becomes infected could turn into tetanus and death. Straightforward first aid intervention could prevent these tragic consequences but even the most basic medicines are not within reach of most of these poor families. Medicines cost money, so does transport to get to the nearest hospital which may be 50Km away. Water, especially clean water, is scarce and flies swarm in abundance. Blood attracts them!! During our visits to Kenya we have encountered children with massive tumours and grieving families who have lost a child just because they didn’t have access to simple first aid medicines such as antiseptics and bandages.
Abigail Ministries has been given a very generous gift to build a First Aid Clinic near Seed School in Seiyo which will be of great benefit to the community there. The Clinic will offer first aid treatment and medicines for minor injuries and illnesses as well as a Counselling Service and advice on Family Planning.
