Our founders mission -support us
Joseph Katana comes from Ganze Sub-County, Ganze location. He went to Shimo-La-Tewa High school from 1977 to 1980. He joined Kenya Medical Training College in 1984 and graduated in 1987 with a diploma in clinical medicine. After that he worked for Kenya Ministry of Health for ten years before he joined the family planning private sector for another five years.
After seeing a Public Hospital being overwhelmed by a large number of patients with some not accessing care for long hours he decided to do something for those people. This is why he and Beatrice, who has Secondary School education and is trained in secretarial work, founded Huruma Tele Medical Clinic. Huruma is Swahili and means compassion in English.
Today Joseph is clinical officer in charge, Beatrice is the financial director. Together with their seven coworkers they provide health care in a rural area at a subsidized cost. So that even the poor people can afford treatment.
