In October 2008, Granaghan Outreach returned to Western Kenya to help construct an operating theatre at the remote Dophil Clinic. The clinic is a small but comprehensive one, on the road from Kisumu to Siaya and is a satellite clinic for the District hospital. The project was the new build of an operating theatre, approx. 100m2 on land directly behind the clinic. The construction of the operating theatre at Dolphil will hopefully turn the clinic into a serious satellite station for the whole region and provide access to surgical needs for a huge number of people. This project was carried out in conjunction with Moving Mountains.
Noreen’s Well was also built on the site of Barkatado Orphanage in Western Kenya. Not only does it provide water for the orphanage children, but people from the entire community now have easier access to a potable water supply. The well was built entirely by workforce local to the Barkatado area and was funded for by the Conway Family and Granaghan Outreach. The well was officially opened during the Granaghan Outreach visit and was blessed by our friend Fr Matthews Oddour. Noreen’s well is in memory of Noreen Conway.
