The Mago Care foundation has the objective to provide the residents of Mago in Kenya with a brighter future. The foundation will obtain this goal by realizing two key targets for the inhabitants: providing them with sufficient nutrition and good medical facilities.
A daily meal for 500 children
The food aid mainly targets children. Mago Care will see to it that the children will have a meal during school. This ensures they get all the vital nutrition, helping them to do better in school, which is also essential for their future. A daily meal will also prevent deceases. With the help of Mago Care more than 500 children will get a daily meal at school.
Medical Centre as from 2014
The foundation would like to improve the medical facilities by building a medical centre in the village. Medio 2014 the foundation has ensured that there is a good accommodation, with all the means and instruments necessary and qualified medical staff. With the construction of this Medical Centre, where doctors, a dentist, a laboratory and a pharmacy are established, the foundation wants to give the population an oppurtunity to see a doctor in time for a treatment or a referral to a hospital. Due to the lack of these local medical facilities too many people die needlessly. In 2019 a new optical service has been added to the medical centre in Mago. This gives the opportunity to the local people to have their eyes checked and get the right glasses.
Another important task for the medical centre is to give sufficient advice regarding for a good and healthy way of living. By informing the local people how to live a healthy life, how to identify the first signals of diseases and the importancy about getting the necessary vaccinations less people will die.
