What we do
Rainbow for Africa is an international network of volunteers, mainly health professionals but not only, who work together with partners in different countries, mainly African, to promote and deliver equal access to dignified living conditions and health interventions to underprivileged groups of the population.
Rainbow for Africa UK volunteers share their professional skills in selected deprived settings promoting the development of health and social interventions. The health interventions are particularly focused on introducing new technologies to aid diagnosis and improved patient care, upskilling of current health care staff, providing coaching and consultancy during free medical camps, promoting a culture of solidarity with the involvement of the counterpart local medical professionals.
Rainbow For Africa network promotes equality and the value of collaborative work, building bridges among people irrespective of their different cultural identities, races, beliefs, orientations or religions.
Where we work
Rainbow for Africa UK currently operates mainly in Kenya, where it has an established network of local stakeholders: governmental and non-governmental including the Kenyan Department of Health representatives in different areas, University of Nairobi representatives and different religious and non-religious organizations and NGOs.
We set up free medical camps all over the region, treating vulnerable groups of the population with scarce access to public healthcare.
Rainbow for Afica UK provides healthcare in the slums of Deep Sea and Kangemi, just in the outskirts of Nairobi.
We are the first charity to provide healthcare to the people of Deep Sea directly to their homes.
The ability to reach people living under such precarious conditions and provide them with basic healthcare from simple check-ups to organising hospitals referrals may be the opportunity for people with disabilities and severe illnesses to get the help they need.
What we address
Our primary mission is to increase the quality, specificity and accessibility of health systems in Kenya. We aim to respond to humanitarian need, supporting clinical staff to travel to areas requiring their targeted expertise with direct patient care or by training local clinicians. Our work aims to make sustainable improvements, leaving skills and expertise within the region once our specific mission is complete.
We will strive at all times to implement this mission statement with the highest professional and ethical standards.
