Mary Fleming

THE STORY:

My name is Mary Fleming and I am an OBGYN. In September, I will be traveling to Kenya to begin a six month placement at Mutomo Mission Hospital. 


About Mutomo, Kenya: 

The village of Mutomo is located in a semi-arid area of Kenya.  Although Mutomo is only about four hours away by car from Nairobi, it is a world away.  This remote community lacks paved roads and donkeys, goats and chickens generally outnumber cars and motorcycles on the dusty streets in town.  Most homes do not have electricity or plumbing and they are often quite far from the nearest neighbor or health facility, including the Mutomo Mission Hospital. Lack of clean water is one of Mutomo’s primary problems. The severe drought affecting all of Kenya has especially affected this community which depends on seasonal rainfall. Women and girls spend hours each day walking to a safe pump or shallow wells that are nearly empty.  As the dry season approaches, women may spend weeks digging down as far as 15 meters to find water, which is often salty. Most river beds are completely dry.  This community is very poor with most of the 17,000 inhabitants living under the official poverty level of $1.25 USD a day.

CMMB is an NGO focused exclusively on global health care for the world’s poorest populations. We believe in a world in which every human life is valued, and health and human dignity are shared by all. Every year, we are so lucky to have generous, courageous people step forward and volunteer their time and expertise in areas of the world where it is most needed. They leave behind loved ones and employment to support our mission to help vulnerable women, children and families survive.
