At the time of writing, late July 2022, we are planning to proceed with our next mission in late April 2023. Naturally, many factors must be considered in making this decision, COVID-19 and Monkeypox being the primary concerns. The safety of nurses travelling to Kenya to work, as well as the risks posed by congregating large numbers of people visiting our clinics must be balanced with the needs of those seeking the medical care we provide. We are fortunate to have a member of our advisory board with advanced training in infectious disease to help guide us in making these important decisions.
We will be selecting the next team of nurses in early September, giving priority to nurses who were accepted to the last mission that was cancelled due to COVID restrictions.
