WELCOME TO THE FUNZI AND BODO TRUST
THE FUNZI SCHOOLS
The Trust seeks to improve local education facilities.
THE FUNZI AND BODO CLINICS
Our clinics offer a wide range of medical care.
The beautiful island of Funzi is a popular tourist destination in Kenya. Visitors enjoy the rich wildlife and feast on locally caught seafood. But the people in the villages of Bodo and Funzi endure very different conditions. On Funzi there is no electricity or running water and in both villages people live in traditional mud houses with no sanitation and their lives at risk from illness and disease.
The Funzi and Bodo Trust works with the villagers to provide healthcare and to improve educational facilities. Among its achievements are two medical clinics, road and water ambulances, funded surgery for the seriously ill, two rebuilt schools, a library, and a computer centre.
Through its activities the charity hopes to break the cycle of poverty which afflicts people's lives. The chairity employs no UK staff to ensure money raised reaches the people in Funzi and Bodo.
News from our clinic in Bodo is that the medical team is under a lot of pressure because of unusually high levels of malaria. People are travelling some distance from villages in the vicinity to reach our Bodo clinic. The cost of being treated by us is significantly cheaper than elsewhere and for many poor people we could be their only option.
There is a lack of of medicines for treating the condition available and we are having to work hard to secure adequate supplies. It is when these outbreaks occur that the valuable work done by the Funzi and Bodo clinic becomes most evident. We are ready to make additional funds available to meet the challenge and will be be fundraising to meet the cost. Donate Now
