Join us on a trip to Kenya! Mission trips occur once or twice a year and are a necessary function of Bonyo’s Kenya Mission. Volunteers travel to western Kenya to work in the Mama Pilista Bonyo Memorial Health Centre and provide medical services to those living in and near Wanjaya Village.
Over the years, Bonyo’s Kenya Mission has provided medial treatment to tens of thousands of patients in this underserved area where 70% of the population lacks access to health care. This includes prenatal, delivery; as well as, maternity care; dental, eye, and would treatment.
As you would expect, the village has a pressing need for medical professionals. Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, emergency personnel, medical and pharmacy students and volunteers will find great reward in providing patient care at the clinic.
There is much work to be done, and non-medical and medical personnel work side by side in their efforts to help. While volunteering at the clinic, you may provide diagnosis and treatment for malaria, TB, HIV/AIDS, tropical illnesses and malnutrition. You do not need a medical background to help out: there are plenty of needs with which you can assist.

We do more than offer medical services! Besides treating patients at the clinic, we set aside plenty of time to get to know our gracious hosts, visit local sights, shop, and learn more about the rich culture. Highlights include a safari, hippo watching on Lake Victoria and sampling a variety of authentic Kenyan cuisine.
If you are planning to travel with us, you will need to attend an organizational meeting about the trip. You will also need immunizations in accordance with the CDC and a current passport. The cost of the trip varies based on airfare. Plan $3,500 – $4,000 to cover all trip expenses including airfare, ground transportation, hotel and meals.
