Nyanchwa Adventist Hospital is a newly established hospital which was formerly serving as a dispensary in Kisii town, Kenya. Dr. Elfred Solis (general surgeon) and his wife Marialita (obstetrician) are the only doctors in this 30 bed facility. Since 2014 they have done about 700 surgeries.
Many of their patients are having BPH or urethral strictures resulting from infections or forceful catheterization done in some rural health centers. There are no urologists in this area and often surgeons are expected to handle these cases. Right now the only way of managing them is by open prostatectomy and urethral dilatation or scar excision.
By October 2016 a German urologist plans to serve in Nyanchwa Adventist hospital to help improve the services for urological patients. Thanks to generous donations we already received some endoscopic equipment, such as a light source, a camera and monitors. To properly attend to the needs of our urological patients we still need a cystoscope, a urethrotome and a resectoscope. We would be most thankful for used equipment or financial support.

We run a country-house on the hills of Bologna where we host since 2014 regular vegan cooking classes and health programs for the general public: friends and patients of the physiotherapy clinic that Alessia Venturoli runs downtown.
The idea is to start this year 2016 with a christian bed and breakfast, so to share our christian view of life through friendship and literature and healthy breakfasts every morning.
For this project we offer a working place as helper in the running of the bed and breakfast.
