Doing our part to tackle #coronavirus

Safari Doctors designed a poster in Kiswahili to raise awareness on how to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Lamu. We have stocked up on extra medicines and plan to continue our medical outreach as already vulnerable populations continue to be in need of health services. We're grateful for any support you can offer during this difficult and uncertain time. Asante!

Mama Daktari!

Our wonderful new boat, Mama Daktari, made her maiden sail in July and has since been carrying out our monthly medical outreach sessions with ease, keeping the team dry and comfortable in the rain! Thank you to everyone, especially Brandee Barker, who made this dream of ours a reality. Asante.
