Slide Since 2019, a joint Czech-German-German-Italian-Kenyan project to save the nearly extinct northern white rhinoceros has been underway. Using the oocytes of the last two living females(who were born in captivity in the Czech Republic) and frozen sperm from the last two males who died of natural causes in Kenya, the team is trying to create embryos that would then be transferred into females of the closely related southern white rhino living in the Ol Pejeta Concervancy. Slide In 2015-17, three small-scale projects (worth cca EUR 35 thousand) to equip the Itibo health facility in western Kenya were implemented. Slide In 2015-19, a joint Czech-Slovak team of doctors worked repeatedly at "The Mater Hospital" in Nairobi, performing cardiac surgeries on paediatric patients.
