Kaela Ellen Walsh: Rural Volunteer Participant

My name is Kaela Walsh.  I am a university graduate of a BSc. majoring in biology and minoring in psychology from Memorial University, Newfoundland, Canada.  I hope to continue my studies in physiotherapy sometime in the near future.  My decision to travel to Migori, Kenya, was influenced by my association with MUNHOPE (Memorial University Health Outreach Promotion & Education), an organization based at Memorial University which is affiliated with IHOPE Foundation.  Just a few short months ago I was in Canada not knowing what to expect in Kenya.  However, I am very happy to say that my time spent here has been nothing short of amazing.  From the friendly people to the rich culture, I have never felt anything but welcomed.   

Through my volunteer work with IHOPE Foundation, during the past month, I have recognized the dire need for health outreach initiatives in the Migori County.  The vast number of people living with HIV/AIDS alone needs immediate attention, not to mention the large number of teenage pregnancies occurring, the usage of contaminated water, the lack of pit latrines, and unsafe mining practices, just to name a few.  With the help of the other IHOPE Foundation team members; I was able to begin addressing these pressing issues to provide outreach, promotion, and education about health.  I honestly believe that, in providing people with proper knowledge, we have empowered them.  Knowledge allows people to take control and responsibility for their actions and lives in general, something that is fundamentally important in being healthy.  I have visited persons living with HIV, volunteered at the Migori County Level 4 Hospital, talked to many students about Family Planning, Reproductive Health, and HIV/AIDS, given advice to the motorbikers concerning drugs and alcohol abuse, donated medical supplies to needy dispensaries, and helped construct a semi structure for a person living with HIV/AIDS, among many other things.  Through these experiences, I have seen that the people of Migori have the kind hearts needed to help each other reach complete and sustained rural health.
