Repatriation of patients at Mathari

Mathari hospital is the only mental health referral hospital in Kenya. Some patients are abandoned by their relatives and cannot leave the hospital after successful treatment and discharge. This poses a threat on the financial resources of the hospital. Early in the year, there were in excess of 71 patients which Kamili organisation is working with Mathari hospital to repartriate. Currently Kamili’s dedicated social worker has linked 92 patients to their families and Kamili nurses in their communities.
