What is MS Kenya?

Multiple Sclerosis Association of Kenya, abbreviated as MS-Kenya is a legally registered organization that brings together people with, those affected by and professionals dealing with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and a similar disease called Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO). This includes, but is not limited to, patients living with the conditions, their families, caregivers, neurologists, physiotherapists and nutritionists.

We meet once every second Saturday of the month at All Saints Cathedral kindergarten to encourage one another, learn about how to deal with the challenges of living with MS and to organize activities to help us meet the association’s objectives. Apart from the monthly meeting, the group has a WhatsApp Group where members share and encourage each other.

Objectives:

  1. To acquire and share information on Multiple Sclerosis and Neuromyelitis Optica.
  2. To provide support and relief to people affected by MS and NMO.
  3. To act as a link to other Multiple Sclerosis Societies and Associations worldwide.
  4. To lobby and create awareness on MS and NMO
  5. To promote research into Multiple Sclerosis and allied conditions for the benefit of all.
