The Hilton Slum can be a dangerous place to live, especially for the children. The children often play amongst the rubbish where there are sharp objects causing injury and fires burning beneath; therefore children are often putting their bare feet into the fires causing severe burns.
After numerous meetings with the Medical Officer of Health in Nakuru, workers at The Walk Centre succeeded in gaining free medical care at the local dispensary for all students of The Walk Centre and their families. This does not however cover referrals to the General Hospital or if the patient requires medicine. The cost for this is not subsidised by the Government so The Walk Centre does everything it can to provide the families with these funds, allocating approximately 5000Ksh (approx £40) of its monthly budget to medical fees. If The Walk Centre can not meet these costs they are forced to prioritise each individual case.
The Centre often receives offers from medical or religious organisations/groups to come and talk to the community of the Hilton Slum. These talks consist of topics such as contraception, nutrition and general health.
