Tabitha Medical Clinic

Because all people deserve high quality, low cost healthcare.


The Tabitha Medical Clinic emerged from the dreams of the late Tabitha Festo. A resident of Kibera and widowed mother of three, Tabitha was given $26 from Rye Barcott to start a vegetable selling business. The money she earned from that business would help her to start a single-room medical clinic in her own home. With $26 and a dream, Tabitha’s clinic has blossomed into one of CFK’s most accomplished initiatives.

Healthcare for Kibera

Today the three-story, thirteen-room clinic rises over Kibera’s low-lying roofs as an important community landmark. Offering a wide range of services from x-ray screening to HIV/AIDS testing to family planning counseling, the clinic has made a dramatic difference in the health of tens of thousands of Kiberans.

Outside the Clinic Walls

In partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, clinic staff members and a team government-sponsored of Community Health Workers (CHWs) offer health education and in-home screenings to members of the broader Kibera community. The clinic’s dual focus on treatment and prevention comes to life in the hands of CHWs.
