Kenya: Let the Dying be Heard

Patients with life threatening illnesses are often left to wonder why God decided to limit their voices. The doctor says this illness cannot be treated and send them home. Interventions like Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy and Dialysis are expensive and the poor in Kenya cannot afford. Relatives shy away and live them in agony. Their voices are suppressed and there is no one to talk to. Palliative Care providers attend to them, support them and listen to their stories but rarely do they voice them out. These stories are touching and voicing them through stories would direct help their way.
