Dr. Shikuku Wants To Go Where Children Need Care

Students at Hope Africa

“MedSend… sponsor[ed] my residency and general orthopedics training in Kenya. I’d like to continue to extend just a huge thank you for making this possible. Not just the residency but also the fellowship that I’ve started. [The National Scholars Program] is a great way to reach out to many people who wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford to take these trainings. May God bless you as you reach out to many more.” – Dr. Chelsea Shikuku  


Dr. Shikuku, an orthopedic surgeon and recent National Scholar graduate, is the first National Scholar to continue her training in a pediatric orthopedic fellowship. She is studying at CURE Children’s Hospital in Kenya and Ethiopia with the goal of serving in a rural area of Kenya long-term. She wants to go where the children need her the most. 

Dr. Shikuku has a special video message for MedSend donors provided courtesy of CURE International:

This isn’t just a mission, it’s a movement. Every person healed, every soul touched, takes us another step along this pathway of compassion – a living testament to a God who always makes a way. Will you help fully fund the mission of MedSend and join the movement today?
