Calling All Doctors and Nurses!

Dr. Deweese has generously donated a $25,000 matching gift toward providing healthcare at Nyaka.

Please don’t let it go to waste!

We've raised $10,000 thanks to a Nyaka Board Member donating $5,000 today and we only have $15,000 left to raise!

But we still need your help.   Join us and donate

Can you imagine your child, wife, or beloved family member not having access to healthcare?

Dr. Paul Deweese, a local Michigan physician and philanthropist has offered to cover half the staffing costs to get the Mummy Drayton School Clinic running to full capacity. We need your help to hire a full-time physician, nurses, mid-wife, and janitor. Every day spent fundraising in the U.S. is another day babies could be born in a safe environment and children could get treated for common ailments like malaria.

You can ensure thousands of children who have lost their parents have access to healthcare.


The goal for the Mummy Drayton School Clinic is to provide basic healthcare to the student community, their caretakers who are typically elderly grandmothers, and to the village at large.  

Can you believe that in 2012, in this area there is still only one doctor for 250,000 individuals in this remote region?

With your help the Clinic will ensure students, their elderly grandmothers, and the community at-large have access to aspirin and pills for malaria.   We recently lost two grandmothers who were caring for their orphaned grandchildren to malaria, a disease that is entirely preventable!

NAOP needs your generous donation to help Dr. Daniel, a local contract physician to staff and open the doors on a daily basis rather than only 1-2 times a week.

Health Education sessions are carried out every Monday at Clinic for the grannies and the community. 1,401 consultations were done at Mummy Drayton School Clinic over the past 90 days.

Donate generously today by marking “clinic” in the memory/honor box on the Donate Now page.

Please donate today!

Together, with your help, we are making history.  From its inception The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project (NAOP) has been about promoting human dignity.  Initially this was focused on orphans but quickly included grandmothers.  Every program NAOP has undertaken has led to the demolishing of barriers to human flourishing.  While there remains much to do, The Mummy Drayton School Clinic will play an important role in assisting individuals and the broader community in preventing and treating disease.  There is simply no higher calling than this.  Few organizations have the capacity and the reach to make such a dramatic impact on the well-being as NAOP.  —Dr. Paul Deweese
