FOL facilitates link between Londiani District Hospital and Mayo General Hospital

The link project between Londiani District Hospital (LDH) and Mayo General Hospital (MGH) was officially agreed in February of this year. This week starts the first meeting of the MGH team and the LDH team. Both teams met in Nairobi last night, and will begin the week with an exploratory tour of various hospitals in Kenya – from the National Level to Community Level. The team will visit Nairobi General Hospital, Kenyatta Hospital in Nairobi and then travel to Nakuru where they will visit Nakuru Provincial Hospital. They will then travel to Eldoret to visit the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, before visiting the Ndubusat Bethel Medical Clinic on Wednesday. The team will reach Londiani on Wednesday where they will work together in developing partnership projects for the future. FOL who has a long partnership with LDH will facilitate the link.
