January 26, 2019

We have all been delivered safely and on time to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Now it is up to the airlines to get us home. Our day began with an early, cool start for the three-hour drive back across the Mara plains. In addition to the usual animals we managed to see another cheetah

Our treat today was a drive through the Mara National Reserve in safari mode (roof up), the now traditional ‘bush lunch’ on the banks of the Mara River, then checking-in to the luxury Mara Serena Safari Lodge. The Mara is greener than usual at this time of year so beautiful vistas prevailed for the animal

We took a break mid-morning on our final day of holding clinics to visit the children at Loigero Primary School where we were treated to traditional Maasai song and dance. This is the first school that A Better World Canada supported after our co-founder Eric Rajah saw children in this area being taught in the

There was rain again tonight but no hippo grazing across the river. It was a hot day in our operatory at the Talek Health Centre, A Better World’s signature health clinic. This was the tightest space that we have worked in on this trip but that did not prevent us from seeing over 40 patients.

We completed our work in Oloolaumutia after a successful morning in which we treated approximately 20 people. One gentleman hadn’t slept last night due to tooth pain; he was most grateful for our help and thought he’d be able to sleep tonight and be back at work tomorrow. The highlight of the day for Candace

We weren’t too concerned about the rain that fell again through the night because we knew we had only a five-minute drive to our clinic site at the Deliverance Church in Oloolaimutia. The worst case scenario would have been to walk there from our lodge. This was the third time that we have operated at

Our drivers were awake for much of the night trying to solve the dilemma of how to get the team to today’s clinic in Naikarra. The problem began with a thunderstorm shortly after we had checked into Enkorok Mara Camp last evening, with rain that continued through much of the night. They knew that their

Today was a travel day as we left the tea-growing district around Kericho and moved on to Oloolaimutia on the southeast corner of the Mara National Reserve. The highlight of the day was a stop for lunch at Olarro Resort with its grand view over the Mara.

Our second day at Momoniat Health Centre was much the same as the first, except this time we packed everything up in the late afternoon. Around mid-day we had to troubleshoot a technical problem with one of the suction lines but were back up to full speed after an hour or so. You can see

We are grateful for their support in organizing this clinic and for Beatrice’s presence

Today we traveled from Gilgil to Kericho. After a pleasant stay in the Jacaranda Hotel, we “escaped” to have lunch at a beautiful arboretum. We also had a tour of the Toror Tea Factory – now, we can truly appreciate the work that goes into preparing a cup of tea! We’re planning on an early

Tuesday January 15, 2019: First Day at the clinic.

Today is our first clinic at Gilgil Township School. The new generator is working well and there have been no mechanical issues with anything today. 36 children were treated. We had a local dentist observing and participating. The team is working hard and is starting to gel – we packed up in under an hour
