The mCHW Kibera Community Health Choir: Promoting Health Through Music

JpegOn the return from a knowledge exchange visit to Makueni County, the health volunteers and community health extension workers (Kibera CHVs and CHEWs) were singing the whole way home. Inspired by that experience, they came up with the idea to form a community health choir to promote health messages in their community and beyond through songs and dance. They rehearse weekly in Kibera. In the samples below, you hear the CHVs and CHEWs from the Kibera units Mashimoni, Soweto, Silanga and Laini Saba singing.

Listen to some samples of the choir here:

Song ‘Our Health Is Our Responsibility’

Song ‘Unite, We Can’t Do Without Health’

Song and Dance of Praise
