and organizations including RockHealth Integrated Care and Consultancies (RICO) a fully registered community based
organization (CBO).



To join other organizations in rescuing the situation of increasing malaria infections, food insecurity and complications
that accompany them.

Visit To ROTU Community Dispensary

Rotu Community Health Unity is a registered health facility under KMPDB registration no. 002808.

This dispensary is well built, equipped and has been run by the Catholic Mission since it was built. It has been non-functional since end of July, 2017 upon departure of the head nurse. This is a huge problem for the people of East Pokot, Tirioko Ward as this is the only dispensary they have. People either perish for lack of health care services or are forced to travel hundreds of kilometers in search.

Field Hospital

The camp opened at around 10 am with everything well laid out. The community was very receptive and members of RICO freely interacted with the community and thus setting up a good working environment. There were speeches from the representatives of RICO and even community representatives. After the interactive session, the activities of the day took over the better part of the day.

Food Donation

The RockHealth Team was able to serve the entire population that showed up to the site. With the aid of the Ward Administrator, Sub County Administrator, Mr. Peter Kiptalam and Mr. Akeno Moses respectively, we were able to group the community into 6 villages. The food was distributed equally among the villages with each village getting 2 sacks of maize, 1 sack of beans, 1 sack of sugar, 2 sacks of rice, 1 sack of maize flour and 40 liters of cooking oil. The household distribution was to be done by the village elders. Some of the remainder was donated to the mission church received by Fr. Sean who normally distributes food to the Pokot community too. The food donation targeted 250 households each having 5 members.
