Kibera appeal There are approx 2.5 million slum dwellers in about 200 settlements in Nairobi representing 60% of the Nairobi population, occupying just 6% of the land. Kibera houses almost 1 Million of these people.
Kibera is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the biggest in the world. The Government owns all the land. 10% of people are shack owners and many of these people own many other shacks and sub-let them. All the rest are tenants with no rights All the people are African.
Until recently Kibera had no water and it had to be collected from the Nairobi dam. The dam water is not clean and causes typhoid and cholera. In Kibera there are no government clinics or hospitals. Kibera needs land/tenancy rights, housing, water, electricity, health clinics, education, employment, security plus much more. However, money cannot help without people to direct it – all organizations require assistance. They all need intelligent, keen, willing, and compassionate people to help.
The Harunani and Co Charitable Foundation is there to provide a dental clinic for those people in need. The Dental clinic will provide free consultations and assessments to those people who are in need both for oral medicine and dental treatment and will act as a diagnostic centre as well. It will be able to refer patients with serious illnesses who can be seen at the local hospital before it is too late. tives.
