JAFFERY MEDICAL CENTRE

THE FIRST MOBILE CLINIC STARTS OPERATIONS IN MOMBASA, KENYA

jmc1

The Jaffery Medical Centre in Mombasa is managed by the Jaffery Medical Board of the KSI Jamaat of Mombasa. The Centre has just completed five years of its existence.

JMC provides outpatient service and is manned by two doctors and one dentist, besides the requisite support staff. There is a fully equipped laboratory operated by qualified Lab technicians, x-ray and ultrasound units and a well equipped dental clinic. Medicines are dispensed under the guidance of the doctors from our Pharmacy.

One vision that the Jaffery Medical Board had was the establishment of a mobile clinic to serve people in the rural areas around Mombasa. This vision was realized and the mobile clinic made its first trip on 06 June 2012.

The mobile clinic is sponsored by the Mohsin and Fauzia Jaffer Foundation of the USA while the Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya is providing local logistical support. Jaffery Medical Board is indebted to both these institutions for their support and cooperation.

Five centres were identified on the South Coast with the help of the Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya. Each of these centres is part of a cluster of villages. The mobile clinic visits each centre once a week between Monday and Friday and medical services is provided to society in general irrespective of their religion or ethnic backgrounds.

The first visits to the five sites resulted in good attendance. The average number of patients that are now attending stands at 130 per day. A wide range of ailments have been seen. This includes Anaemia, Bilharzia, Malaria, Diabetes, Diarrhoea, Hypertension, Respiratory problems, Urinary tract infections and skin allergies.

It is envisaged that the coverage of the Mobile clinic will be expanded once all teething problems are overcome.

We wish to acknowledge the support of the World Federation and Africa Federation towards our projects.
