KENYA: MAASAI MARA: SOPA CLINIC (ENKITORIA HEALTH CENTER)

About the Site

Oloolaimutia is located in the Sopa area of Masai Mara. The clinic serves a population of 15,000 people. The clinic was started in 1996 with one room constructed by local people and later 2 rooms were added. Due to lack of funding, this building was built mostly using mud bricks and was slowly deteriorating. On market days, up to 100 people can be seen lined up for treatment. The clinic is operated by a local church and community group. Our goal is to expand the health services to the people in the greater Sopa area. Juma Sampuerrap, who worked at the Telek Health Centre, is now serving as a clinical officer in the Oloolaimutai Health Centre.
