luggage & clothing
Clothing for the mission must be chosen carefully. Please pack lightly. Every effort will be made to allow you to check one suitcase. Each individual should place sharp objects, large bottle liquids, personal medicines or other small personal items that are not allowed on the plane in their personal checked bag. In addition to your checked suitcase, you are responsible for one equipment footlocker as your second checked piece of luggage. A backpack or small bag may also be utilized as a carry-on bag. Kenya is located on the equator and, except along the coast, enjoys very moderate temperatures due to its high altitude over most of its territory. A jacket may be desired in the mornings and evenings.
Team members, while working at the clinics, wear MEDICAL SCRUB TOPS. LONG PANTS FOR MEN AND LONG SKIRTS OR DRESSES FOR WOMEN ARE REQUIRED. DO NOT BRING SHORTS. Long pants for everyone are fine for relaxing in the evening. A raincoat or pancho is recommended, and, as it is often muddy, an extra pair of shoes or rubber boots is also recommended.
