Home to deadly snakes, frequent trauma, and severe illness, emergency health services are virtually non-existent for the 25,000 people that live on Mfangano Island, Kenya. Since 2011, the Organic Health Response (www.organichealthresponse.org) has established the region's first Emergency Boat and helped coordinate urgent care for remote island communities. Through Wilderness EMS training, a 24-hour on-call boat crew, and streamlined referral systems, the EK Emergency Boat is helping Kenyans to get the care they need, when they need it. Early success brings responsibility and opportunity... with your help in 2014, we'll enhance our services by building a locally-designed 29ft ambulance boat, and activate a network of community health workers to be emergency health navigators and patient advocates!

Help give us a push! www.organichealthresponse.org
