The students, numbering over 150 students are on a seven-day mission pitching medical camps in remote areas where they will treat residents.
They call their effort “Mission 2015”. The students are led by Clepsy Kobol. The medical camp which started on November 21, 2015 is expected to come to a close on the 28th of November.
Ms Clepsy pointed out that most patients from the two wards were suffering from malaria, typhoid and brucella. “It’s raining heavily here and mosquitoes are multiplying fast.
People therefore are prone to malaria and need mosquito nets urgently,” she said.
The need to contribute to a better health across Africa cannot be over emphasized and a project like this is quite laudable, owing to the fact that it is offered to indigents who cannot ordinarily afford these services.
On behalf of the CP Africa team, we celebrate these young people and wish them well in their endeavors.
