Pandemic Delayed Medical Dispensary
Cargo Human Care Dispensary

     In a peculiar twist, Cargo Human Care (CHC), under the leadership of the great former Lufthansa Chief Cargo pilot Fokko Doyan (Fokko ditched his chief pilot post so he could devote more time to this charity, although he still flies an MD-11F for the carrier), found itself with a medical facility that had to wait to open because of COVID-19.
     After its completion at the end of February 2020, the dispensary was to be handed over to the Itolish Primary School and the Kilgoris. Unfortunately, the handover could not take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
     Joachim Pfeffer, who planned the dispensary and took over construction management, was finally able to hand over the dispensary on August 4.
     The handover with Herr Pfeffer (fourth from left in the front row in photo above) and opening took place on August 4th, 2020, in the presence of the Local Chiefs, School Head Master, and School Board.
     Joachim handled everything, including assembling furniture that was brought from Nairobi to the Maasai Mara.
     The school has hired a clinical officer to operate the dispensary.
     Of course, the mission is to always try to exceed the need.
     So, the minute they got the green light (even before the handover), the dispensary supplied medication and treated the first patients this month.
     “Cargo Human Cares will continue to support the project,” Fokko Doyen assures.
     “As soon as funding is secured, a refrigerator will be purchased to store vaccines for the population.
     “At the same time, we are reaching out for help install a solar [power] system to ensure the power supply.”
