Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya – Sisters Spearhead Quality Hospital Treatment

Kakuma Refugee Camp, established in 1992, houses more than 200,000 refugees from South Sudan, Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, Ethiopia and Uganda. The Kalobeyei settlement, just outside Kakuma Refugee Camp, is home to more than 53,000 refugees.

“We serve a lot of people, especially refugees living in the two camps,” and women seeking C-sections, Assumption Sr. Anastasia Murugi, the matron at the facility, told Global Sisters Report. “Sometimes we are overwhelmed because this is the only hospital in the region offering specialized treatment. Caesarean deliveries are hectic, and you have to balance them with other surgeries, which is sometimes impossible to achieve.”
