AIC Kijabe Hospital is a growing network of Kenyan hospitals and clinics that started in 1905 at the campus pictured above.  Patients come because of a rumor that circulates far and wide, that God lives in Kijabe. They know their clinicians will provide honest, skilled care, and also pray for their healing.  

Friends of Kijabe is the U.S. based 501 (c) (3) partner of Kijabe Hospital, created to help individuals and foundations around the world support compassionate healthcare, excellent training, and spiritual ministry to God’s glory.

The Friends of Kijabe board includes the AIC Kijabe Hospital CEO, Finance Director, Medical Director and volunteers with over 80 years of combined experience in Kenyan projects.

Friends of Kijabe donors are across the globe, many of whom visited, volunteered, or even grew up in Kijabe, and have a special place for this mission hospital in their hearts.
