Medical Mission Teams from the U.S.

THAP’s partnerships with U.S. doctors and medical mission teams began in 2006. THAP has provided funding and assistance to a U.S. medical mission team to Kenya a majority of years since then. The U.S. medical mission teams not only conduct an average of 10 surgeries over a 5-7 day period, they also help the Kenyan hospitals and their medical personnel increase their knowledge and ability to perform the latest surgical procedures through donations of newer medical equipment and training of the medical staff.

Currently we are working with the Hearts of East Africa, a U.S. medical mission team led by Dr. Michael Liske from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee that goes to Tenwek Hospital in Bomet, Kenya each year. Since 2014, Hearts of East Africa has successfully operated on 24 THAP children. Annual medical missions are conducted regularly.
