Canadian Nurses for Africa was formed in 2007 by Gail Wolters of Burlington, Ontario. She met Aggrey Mulamba who is from the Vihiga region of Kenya, and hearing of the lack of affordable health care was moved to help those communities. Gail began organizing in Canada and Aggrey began talking to the communities in Kenya. The first mission travelled in May 2009 with 8 nurses and conducted 8 clinics. We worked alongside 12 Kenyan nurses and clinical officers. The needs in these communities are overwhelming and we were committed to return and to add programs as we were able.
