Despite the many negative and frightening news reports that are coming out of Lamu in recent weeks we are still very much proceeding with our efforts to assist with maternal health in the district.

Although we have been recommended not to visit in person for the time being we are relying on our friends and contacts on the island to ensure that our work continues. The latest news is that the Ministry of Housing has allowed us to use of the doctors house within the hospital complex for any visiting foreign medics and volunteers.

The house was unused for some time and is need of some basic maintenance, decoration and furnishing. It is positioned about 50 yards from the sea and is the perfect location for any visiting volunteer medic. Our priority now is to make it habitable and comfortable so that we can host volunteer gynaecologists, obstetricians, midwives and general surgeons to assist Dr Nurein in his care of the Lamu community and in particular the expectant mothers.
