Friends of FAME started operating in 2013, after being part of the Mobile Clinic and working at the outpatient facility in Karatu, as volunteers. We saw the impact of the mobile clinic and therefore want to contribute to make sure that individuals from all walks of life continue to have access to quality medical care.
The mobile clinic reaches out to rural areas and provides besides medical care also education on health issues. Areas like: the Oldeani community, Rift Valley Children's Village, Lake Eyasi and over 20 drop-in clinics.
Additionally, FAME has been operating a "mini-mobile" neurology clinic in the Mbulumbulu Ward, a remote area roughly 22 miles from Karatu. To give this service some context, the ratio of neurologists to people in Sub-Saharan Africa, is estimated to be only one for every one million to 2.8 million people.
