Project Description

While an estimation of 1,000,000 people in Kenya have epilepsy, only 20% take treatment to control the seizures. Therefore we create awareness about epilepsy at schools, churches and other social gatherings to encourage people with epilepsy to go for medical checkup and take the treatment as prescribed. Youth with epilepsy are taking part in the awareness creation as they share their personal experiences; how it feels to have a seizure, and what support they need from people in their direct environment. Would you like to be educated? Communicate with Epillose Musimbi who coordinates our awareness creation actions: epillose@yotmkenya.com or 0712623681.
