When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the world was not prepared. As a lower-middle income country, Kenya required immediate assistance and HPIC wasted no time in reaching out to its project partners to identify the urgent needs.
HPIC partnered with the Anglican Development Services (ADS) who quickly developed a plan that would provide front line healthcare workers in the country’s busiest clinics with education, training, supplies and the personal protective equipment they needed to safely care for their communities.
With the support of the Ptarmigan Charitable Foundation, HPIC was able to respond immediately and provided training and essential supplies to five health care facilities. As a result, 138 health care workers were trained and equipped to respond to the pandemic, ensuring their safety and the safety of hundreds of patients who accessed medical services.
