P4HT is building a new hospital in the town of Hedaru to provide health services to the Masai people in a desert region who cannot access good healthcare. The project will include a 30 bed health center, an orphanage for children with HIV, volunteer housing,
a mobile clinic, and a full-service hospital with specialties in maternal/child health and surgery. The M.O.M. (Maternity of Mary) Health Center will provide access to ultra-sound, x-ray, and a full range of medical, surgical, and specialty treatment services.
In the Hedaru Region, people have little or no access to healthcare. There are only small, ill-equipped health facilities and a lack of transportation. Because of the high population of HIV patients, this area is in great need of treatment centers and good care. The Maternal/ Child Health Program will answer the need for better pre and post-natal care. We are also planning to solicit help from American specialty doctors to volunteer and train medical personnel at the new hospital.
