This compassionate initiative was jointly organised by the Uhuru Community Development Program (UCDP) and the German NGO, Armut und Gesundheit (Dentist for Africa in partnership with Poverty & Health). The primary objective of these programs is to offer a lifeline to the underserved in our society.
 
Chairman of the NGO, Prof. Gerhard Trabert, expressed his concern about the fact that basic health services often come at a cost for Kenya’s disadvantaged population. In Germany, these services are readily available, and he urged Kenya’s healthcare stakeholders to pool their resources to support the less fortunate.
