Free The Children/Passion To Heal Medical Volunteer Trip (Kenya, September, 2012)

Mission Statement: An international charity and educational partner, Free The Children believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. Free The Children works to empower youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens.

Participants on the Kenya Medical Volunteer Trip had a lasting impact on the level of health care in rural communities. The trip included the following: screening students in Free The Children primary schools for potential skin conditions; diagnosing and prescribing treatment for students and community members; preventing further illnesses by identifying potential causes of common dermatological conditions present in these communities; working with our local health care team to build their capacity for diagnosis and ability to provide optimal treatment for a range of skin conditions.
