Everyone is special.  There is no greater joy than to give someone sight. 

About Us

Mike and Dee Bellière are the founders and driving force behind the charity, MEAK.

Thirty years ago Mike & Dee’s passion for Kenya and its people was firmly cemented when Dee decided that the fisherman on the beach needed her husband’s favourite T-shirt far more than he did! This led to the pair taking ever-increasing quantities of clothing and other supplies for distribution on their bi-annual family holidays.

In 1994 the Belliere’s took the bold step of establishing a bone fide charity and MEAK was born. The main thrust back then was the collection, transportation and distribution of medical and educational aid provided, free of charge, by UK donors to needy organisations in Kenya. Today MEAK organizes and funds medical and surgical missions in the fields of paediatric cardiac surgery, dentistry, ophthalmology and orthopaedics.

To date MEAK has carried out over 140 missions, performing over 15,500 surgical procedures, but we know there are plenty of people we still need to reach and that the numbers in need are increasing on a daily basis.
