The list of diseases, sicknesses, and birth defects that affect Kenyans living in Coast Province goes on and on. Malaria kills over two million Africans per year, which would be similar to watching the entire state of Utah evaporate off the face of the Earth every New Year. It is common to visit this area of Kenya and see somebody suffering from the same illness a few times a month, caused by anything from hygiene issues to bug bites to water problems.
