News & Updates


Merrueshi Village Health Center 2014

Merrueshi Village Health Center is progressing well. We have seen a total of 3,406 patients between October 2013 and April 2014. We continue to earn a good reputation across the region as a family and community friendly health facility. Infant mortality and maternal death have been reduced as a result of our health facility. Although we have made major progress in reducing maternal mortality, we are mindful of the amount of work ahead of us.

Medical lab is complete

We are pleased to report that Merrueshi Village Clinic recently opened a medical lab. The lab is equipped with basic but essential supplies and equipment for a rural health facility. We were fortunate to find a trained Maasai lab technician in Nairobi for the lab. The new lab has enabled our medical team to effectively diagnose and treat residents of Merrueshi and surrounding villages.

Merrueshi Village Clinic is sponsored by Maasai Association - a community-based non-profit organization 501 (c)(3) and NGO based in Bellevue, WA and Kajiado Central District of Kenya. The organization’s humanitarian and relief work is aimed at building schools, water systems, providing academic scholarship to disadvantaged children, and supporting sustainable economic development projects in the Maasai region
