East-Africa Division (ECD)
[Kenya] Gynocare Women’s and Fistula Hospital operated on more than fifteen women during the first week of its inauguration in November 2016. Dr. Mabeya and staff of this modern clinic in Eldoret are proud of their surgical suite which includes a birthing room and intensive care unit. Patients have the best conditions and ample space during hospitalization. Previously, the operating room had been carved out of a kitchen.
The Desert Flower Center in Germany, renowned for its work in restoring victims of Female Genital Mutilation, helped build the clinic in Kenya with funds raised by the Friends’ Association of the Waldfriede Hospital.
