Kwa Kalusya Health Care-Centre

Location: Lukenya, Machakos County

Amara decided to build this Health Centre in 2012 due to the fact that there was no healthcare facility for the community within a radius of forty kilometers (40 KMs), making it a challenge for community residents to access healthcare.

The number of patients has increased over the years from 25 per day to about 70 per day.

Amara has provided the following:

  • 3 consultation rooms with beds, 1 laboratory, 2 storerooms and 3 toilets with water storage facilities in partnership with Dr. Vasant Hardikar & Dr. Sulabha Hardikar
  • Stationery and furniture (observation couches, desks and chairs).
  • Various medical disposables.
  • Blood pressure and diabetes measuring units.
  • Amara intends to provide a nursing quarter in 2018.
  • The Health Care Centre conducted a cervical cancer screening workshop in 2014.

Healing in a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” - Hippocrates
