In the hilly desert terrains at Nabuskaal region in Turkana Northern Kenya, an outreach for health services has been convened for the community. The outreach that is done three times every month is an initiative to ensure that families that live far from health facilities can access health services. In Turkana County it is at least 30 KMS to the nearest health facility.  Atirr, Ero Kwee, 42, arrives for the services and takes a moment to find shade under a tree. She had walked for 7KM from her home with her 4 year old son.
