What We Have Accomplished

At the Mama Pilista Health Centre, we provide testing and treatment for HIV patients.  Currently, 284 HIV patients receive HIV medications and participate in an ongoing HIV support group that meets weekly at the clinic.

Bonyo’s Kenya Mission provides health insurance to approximately 120 families in the village that surrounds the clinic.  The health insurance helps protect these families from additional financial hardship.  For those with chronic health problems, the insurance provides a resource to ensure they get the medical care they need.

“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.” – BB King.  Bonyo’s Kenya Mission knows the value of education and is helping approximately 64 children reach their full potential by sponsoring them to attend elementary and high school.  Some of our students have gone on to university and the support for them continues thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. Bonyos’ Kenya Mission Child Sponsorship Program is truly making a difference one child at a time.

Our Processes

Child Sponsorship

You too can make a difference in the life of a child.  There are always opportunities to get involved with the child sponsorship program.  For as little as $400 a year you can send a child to school and provide all the necessary school supplies.

Permanent Medical Clinic

The Mama Pilista Health Centre is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide quality medical care to those in need.  The clinic can always use donations to help purchase necessary medical supplies and medications.

Mission Trips

Want to travel to Kenya for a cause?  We are always looking for volunteers and medical professionals who have a heart to serve and who would be interested in using their skills to help.
