Shelter gives them everything they need: family, food, education, a future profession. Shelter even has its own garden and farm. But there is still no medical centre here. Occasionally, a nurse comes to examine kids, but her opportunities are very limited.
We decided to build our own medical centre in Shelter, which will provide qualified first aid to the orphans and residents of the nearby Masaai settlements. Just imagine: those incredible people in beads and red capes who decorate the covers of all tourist catalogs about Kenya, in the 21st century do not have access to medicine! Not even because they do not have passports and money, but because in the regions of their residence (by the way, up to 400 thousand Masaai live in Kenya) there are no clinics!
Despite the serious "public burden" on the protection of Kenya’s national parks, Masaai are infringed on the right to medical care, and all the risks of their primitive way of life, traditional initiations and rituals like drinking cow’s blood, are still problems for the tribe only.
