Founded in May 2011, MMK is a registered nonprofit organization with 501c(3) status and is recognized as a public charity by the IRS. MMK mobilizes medical volunteers to lend their services during two-week medical missions to Kenya. Volunteer doctors, pharmacists and nurses from around the United States and globally provides basic health care services, such as diagnosis and treatment; establish partnerships with local health care providers, conduct community wellness training; and encourage healthy lifestyles and preventive health care.


Millicent Mucheru, a native Kenyan and a doctorally trained Registered Nurse, founded MMK after an incidental diagnosis of Hypertension sparked an interest in the mechanism of the human body. Due to the lack of basic health screenings, the Hypertension had been undiagnosed up until she participated in a pre-employment screening when she migrated to the US. She started screening her own family and neighbors in her village and witnessed how the lack of access to basic health care screenings impacted her village.


Having grown up in Kenya gives Mucheru the advantage of staying in touch with current realities. She firmly believes that basic health care is a right, not a privilege.
