St. Francis Moto Hope Health Center is located 150 miles northwest of Nairobi in the Molo (Moto) region of Kenya at Moto Hope Academy and Center.
The Health Center was started by Moto hope Mission, in the year 2017 to meet the medical needs of the rural population neighboring it as well as students and staff at Moto Hope Academy.
Since then it has recorded a high influx of patients who view it as their quality and affordable health facility of choice. The clinic serves people from Moto village and 7 other villages in its environs with a population of over 30,000 people.
Fr. Francis Kabiru (Moto Hope Mission’s Founder) who grew up in Moto village understood the dire need of a health facility in the area to serve the people who would otherwise have to travel over 15km to the Sub-County Hospital in Molo town for medical care.
Most of these target communities are small holder farmers of maize and potatoes, small scale business people, casual laborers and stone quarry workers.
They largely live from hand to mouth and most can barely afford quality health care at the government hospital or other private health facilities.
He envisioned a facility that would serve as a home for the sick in this less privileged setting to receive care, love and hope; a place to witness Christ through healing and good health.
From 2017 to date, the facility has attended to 8,423 medical cases mostly of patients from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, children, youth and the elderly.
Since opening its doors to patients, St. Francis Moto Hope Health Clinic has handled 8,423 medical cases:
1. Outpatient services
Our experienced physicians see patients as walk in visits as well as on appointment basis. Their expertise in primary care has seen us serve over 3530 people since inception as well as over 900 cases from our student population at the center.
2. Immunization services
We provide internationally recommended vaccines for both pediatric and adult residents of Molo. The Clinic works closely with the county government medical ministry to stock recommended vaccines.
3. Pediatric Services
We provide pediatric services for “well child”, checkups and care for the sick children.
4. Laboratory services
Our on-site laboratory performs routine tests including stool examination, blood counts, urinalysis, chemistry panel, pregnancy test, HIV testing among others.
5. Pharmaceutical Services
Our Facility continues to provide patients with quality, efficient, and professional pharmaceutical services.
6. Medical outreach services
Our outreach services are intended to reach the elderly, children, youth and teenagers as well as pre and postnatal mothers who in most instances are not in a position to reach the facility.
The number of patients has over the years grown as more of them are served on a daily basis. There is a great and urgent need to expand and equip the facility to efficiently serve all in need of medical attention in the target communities and beyond.
