  • [01] DOCTORS OF THE WORLD - KENYA MISSION

    The Doctors of the World Cyprus will continue to organise special missions to Kenya and provide medical assistance but local doctors will also be trained in order to offer medical care to patients on a daily base. Molecular Geneticist Matheos Demetriades, who is coordinating the Cypriot mission of the international organisation in Kenya, has told CNA that the Cypriot mission in Kenya has so far examined hundreds of patients and provided assistance in dentistry and pediatrics, as well as laboratory work in Riruta.

    Cypriot pediatrician Petros Iakovides, also in Riruta with the mission, will be visiting Kitira with the rest of the team, where the second biggest shanty town worldwide is located, as he explained. On Tuesday the doctors received further pharmaceutical supplies. Demetriades said that in Kitira there are a lot of people waiting for us there and that the mission will provide medical care in pediatrics and conduct laboratory work, including biochemical, hematological and immunological analyses.

    The mission will depart on Thursday for Nyeri, where a big orphanage is located. Our aim is to create a small medical clinic there since there are approximately 8 thousand people around the orphans home, who have never received any medical treatment, Demetriades said. Meanwhile, the mission has also obtained tenders for extending the medical centre and for making additional wards in Riruta. Apart from Demetriades and Iakovides, the mission of volunteers comprises dentists George Georgiou and Olga Sophocleous and volunteer Katia Christodoulou.
