Kimlea -- (Kenya) Kimlea Clinic

In 2002, the services of Kimlea Clinic—an activity organized by Fanusi Study Centre, in collaboration with the Medical School of the University of Nairobi—were extended to various villages close to Kimlea Training Centre. In addition, the Kianda Foundation undertook a project aimed at establishing a permanent clinic on the property of Kimlea itself. They wanted thus to honor the memory of St. Josemaría on the occasion of his canonization. The clinic was completed in May 2006 and shortly thereafter was asked by the Ministry of Health to assist in a campaign of vaccination against polio and measles, due to an outbreak of these two diseases in the country. In three days, more than 500 children under the age of five were vaccinated. The clinic now attends to an average of 60 patients a day coming from a radius of about fifteen miles.
