MTRH holds Medical Camp in Ziwa
At least 2000 people turned up for a medical camp in Ziwa on June 27, 2012. The day-long camp afforded the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) an opportunity to provide a one-on-one management and treatment of ailments that have not been brought to the facility.
Students from the nearby Primary and Secondary Schools’ and residents of Makongi area (adjacent to Ziwa) led by the Provincial Administration and Local Leaders convened to be served by Clinicians from MTRH.
The MTRH specialists encouraged the residents to occasionally come to the facility for check-up so that they can keep abreast of their health.
“It is important to visit a healthcare facility for general checkup so that certain ailments can be detected and managed before they become chronic.”
Many people examined at the Medical Camp complained of eye sight complications, persistent back pains for the elderly, chest pains and recurrent headaches.
Those found with complications were referred to MTRH for further management.
The camp barely comes a week after a joint one with the SOS Children-Eldoret in which some 3000 persons from Eldoret and its environs were attended to.
