Michelle Makori (d. April 6, 2012)

With great sadness we have to announce the death of our colleague Michelle Makori. Michelle died suddenly on the evening of April 6 2012.

At that time Michelle was almost 9 months pregnant and only 29 years old. Michelle worked nearly 4 years for MS F as a midwife for the Sexual Gender Based Violence program of the Kibera project in Nairobi. She contributed strongly to the expansion of the program and the opening of 24/7 services in a dedicated SGBV clinic. Michelle was very much respected by her patients. We will always remember Michelle’s kindness and friendship and she was always there to help her colleagues and friends.

Our thoughts are with her husband, family and friends.
Richard Veerman,
HoM Kenya Mission
