For You

You have a key role to play in God’s mission to the world.
We believe the poorest patient in Kenya deserves the same access to quality healthcare as a wealthy person in America.
Imagine you would sit down today and write out a plan to bring world-class healthcare to Africa.   Where would you begin?

It’s complicated right?

Fortunately, no.  For more than a century Kijabe Hospital has been a roadmap for advancing health provision in Kenya, without losing sight of the mission to provide affordable care to the poor.  Friends of Kijabe enables you to make strategic investments in areas of greatest need and opportunity.

Understand the Need

The annual budget for Kijabe Hospital is approximately $10 million.
200,000 outpatients

20,000 inpatients

10,000 surgeries

30 consultant physicians

25 medical interns

150 annual international visitors

20 surgery residents/fellows

75% of Kenyans are at risk of impoverishing expense by a catastrophic medical event.

50% of patients have national health insurance, which usually covers 80% of a hospitalization.

NHIF disbursements for delivery services do not fully subsidize the cost, Kijabe loses 15% on each delivery.

$500,000 is lost each year in unpaid debt incurred by patients who do not have financial resources to pay.
&
800+ staff need salary increase of 20-40% in 2018 to meet Kenyan national averages.
Virtually every hospital in America depends on charitable fundraising measures, Kenya is no different in this respect.

The difference between Kenya and America, in Kenya a gift goes 50-100x farther!

Recurring gifts, short-term visits, long-term international missions add sustainability and move available medical resources forward in measurable ways.

You can make a huge difference.
