Volunteer Experiences

Oct 20, 2012

Hal writes: ‘This summer I travelled to Kenya for nine weeks; six of them spent with the Order of Malta and Malteser International. My only previous experience of Africa had been Morocco and Egypt. I got a really good feel for East Africa whilst volunteering for the Order of Malta in various projects for them across Kenya. From the Malteser International TB and HIV clinics in the slums of Nairobi to the Lamu Hospital, I got a taste of just about everything.

What I most enjoyed was my work with Malteser International in Soweto Kayole and Kangemi, which are two slum areas of Nairobi. The staff in both health clinics were great and whilst working alongside them you got a real sense of the community helping each other


Baby Trevor & Baby Faith

Oct 15, 2012

Baby Trevor is now 21 months old. Although his development is a little delayed he is progressing well. He is getting much stronger physically and beginning to stand - it will not be long now until he walks alone.

He remains extremely healthy - other than the normal childhood coughs and colds that all children experience - and has not needed to visit the pediatric heart specialist for many months.

In September 2012 we provided hand washbasins to Gitiba Primary School in Dagoretti Village near Nairobi. The trough-like basins have 20 push taps (to avoid water wastage) and 4 liquid soap dispensers.

These are positioned adjacent to the pupil’s toilets, with a 10,000 litre water tank that is filled by the city council each week. Those who generously donated in memory of Gianfranco Cicogna Mozzoni have made all of this possible.
