Free Children's Clinics
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 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. Plus we distribute nutritional spirulina to most of the children. 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 14000 children. Our goal for 2016-17 is to serve 16000 children.

The Spirulina 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 3000 children and in 15-16, 6000 children received spirulina from our production.
More on Spirulina
During the sixtieth United Nations General Assembly a draft resolution was on the “Use of Spirulina to combat hunger and malnutrition and help achieve sustainable development” was submitted. As a follow up, FAO was asked to prepare a paper on Spirulina.
Low Cost Clinics
ALF supports several low-cost health centres in different areas. The largest is in the Kambimawe village near Wote, Eastern Province. In 2005 the Kambimawe project was initiated as a community supported clinic.
Patients have been attending from local as well as more distant rural and urban areas. These two clinics, and the numerous outlying mobile clinics operated on a monthly basis, have treated over 40,000 people in the past 12 years.
Kambimawe are independent, fairly self-sustaining projects, each employing 4 homeopaths and a laboratory technician.
The clinic has hosted many homeopathic & naturopathic volunteers from around the world, especially student interns. We welcome volunteers either through to share the practice of, and spread, homeopathy.
