Children's Health Care Initiative
Among the children of Kenya’s rural and urban poor, malnutrition and disease are rampant. Abha Light in partnership with H.E.A.L. International Foundation NV, AMURTEL, USA and AMURTEL, Ireland looks to provide come relief for a few of these children.
Through monthly mobile clinics at 20 venues, we are able to provide free clinics and services for the children. The clinics provide health care with Homeopathy and Natural Medicine.
The Nutrition Project: In addition, we distribute nutritional spirulina to most of the children, supported by AMURTEL USA and AMURTEL IRELAND. About 600 children are being served every month. In 2014-15 we served about 6,000 children. Our programme for 2015-16 we served over 14,000 children. Our goal for 2016-17 is to serve 16,000 children.

The Spirulina Nutrition Project
Spirulina Super Food For Nourishing Children
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that thrives in warm alkaline fresh water. It is being developed as the “food of the future” because of its high protein content 60 to 70 percent with all the essential amino acids as well as vitamins, minerals and iron in an easily available and digestible form.
In January 2011 Abha Light started a Spirulina project to feed malnourished children. Beginning with 2 ponds naturally producing high protein Spirulina we have expanded to 3 ponds, total 75 sq m.
In 2014-15 over 3,000 children and in 15-16, 6,000 children received spirulina from our production.
