    Help

    we operate in mwihoko githurai and most of the people here are living in poverty ,illiteracy and unemployment so it becomes very difficult for people who have epilepsy and mental health to get help
    counselling program this program enables the person living with epilepsy to open his heart out since most of them are very stressful and as stress is the major causes of convulsions they feel good when they are talked to it opens them so much
    Acess to AEDS,- we have program that helps over 50 people in our community access anti epilepsy drugs in Kenya only 20% of the 1.2 million can access the drugs so these drugs really help our members and prevent them from having seizures
    out reach programes this entails going to schools and churches to help spread the awareness of epilepsy and mental health most of the community think that epilepsy is demons.witchcraft etc so we must demystify the myths
    We are requesting volunteers to help us with skills inline with that we are offering
    We also need IT skills and marketing skills to help our organization
