UNICEF office in Nakuru, Kenya: February 16, 2008
We just returned a little while ago from running our clinic at a camp north of here. Daily we have crossed the equator to go there and back. Along this road is evidence of the previous violence: burned out houses, just charred skeletons of what were once homes to hardworking families.
We have also passed the burned-out frame of a car that was carrying a couple of priests that were pulled from the car. One priest was stoned by an angry mob and the other spared because he was from the right tribe.
Nakuru, Kenya: February 13, 2008
It is 9:30pm and I am in my cubible of a hotel room in Nakuru, Kenya. The streets are eerily empty as a curfew is being enforced for the town from 7pm to 6am.
We are traveling these days overland by minivan to a town where just a couple of weeks ago there was much violence and disruption. A number of IDP camps are scattered throughout the town. We are working at one run by a church. They have a building that is perfect for our clinic, and have organized all of the camp so well.
Latest update (2/1/2008):
Two volunteers with Medical Teams International will arrive in Kenya this weekend where they'll care for thousands of families fleeing a month of escalating violence since December's controversial presidential elections.
Nurse Brenda Maldonado of Sultan, Wash., and Lou Ingrisano, a physician assistant from Mt. Desert, Maine, will travel to two temporary camps providing urgently needed medical care to thousands of people with little access to food, medicines or shelter.
