Medical Mission Trips
Mobile medical clinics are an ongoing part of Open Arms' outreach to the Eldoret community since our first visit in 2002. Several times a year, we hold medical and dental clinics in areas where it is needed most. In Kenya, the vast majority of people lack access to basic health care.
Medical Teams Provide:
- Basic services include blood pressure checks, abscessed tooth extractions, assessing common skin conditions and stomach ailments, and dispensing needed medications.On a busy day, we may treat as many as 1,000 patients!
- Education regarding good physical and dental hygiene and nutrition, passing out hundreds of tooth brushes and children's vitamins.
- Evangelistic outreach - We route waiting patients through the prayer tent prior to their entering the diagnostic tent. Many have received immediate and miraculous healing!
