ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
Life in Maasai Mara is no different from to other regions of Kenya and poverty has a significant impact on the quality of life that the Maasai people are able to enjoy. Due to remote location of Maasai communities and limited funds, there is a comparative lack of medical knowledge, supplies and education. This limits the care that can be provided to the rural remote communities and means that the care that does exist is spread very thin among wider community. The Maasai medical placement therefore encompasses a number of fields and professionals are solely needed.
