Project Description

 Machakos - Grogony Area
 20th - 25th May 2013
Since 2009, OED-Kenya has partnered with the Retirement Benefits Authority (RBA) to facilitate the hearing conservation campaign for Kenya’s growing Jua Kali sector. In order to conserve the artisans well being, a hearing conservation clinic was held in the Machakos-Grogony area.

We provided free screening for noise induced hearing loss, health education and Protective ear muffs as well for the safety of the ear. The ‘muffs’ were distributed to many of the patients, and over 1,000 Jua kali artisans benefited from the program.
