“MedSend donors made this all possible!”- Dr. Chelsea Shikuku


Thanks to MedSend’s compassionate family of donors, National Scholar Dr. Chelsea Shikuku received advanced training and graduated from her surgical residency program this past December. She has shown tremendous growth in both clinical and leadership skills as she is very hardworking, empathetic, articulate, and a leader to the junior residents.

“Dr. Shikuku is an excellent surgeon and has been the Chief Resident in her final years. She is very grateful for her financial support from the wonderful MedSend donors who made this all possible! They have made an incredible impact on all the children she will be honored to have as her patients,” her residency supervisor shares.  

Excitingly, Dr. Shikuku is now a consultant orthopedic surgeon and a Fellow in the Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery training program in Ethiopia. She plans to become a full-time orthopedic surgeon in Kenya when she completes her fellowship. As she begins her consultancy, Dr. Shikuku tells us she looks forward to continuing her training and compassionate outreach to children for both their physical and spiritual healing.
