Our mission is two-fold. First and foremost, we desire to introduce Africans to the love and hope that is found in Christ alone. We have experienced the goodness of Christ in our own lives and want to share His unfailing love with others. Second, we wish to follow the example of Christ in meeting the physical needs of the people who are among the most vulnerable in the world. We believe God will use us to accomplish both of these things at Kijabe Hospital.
Quick Facts about the people we will minister to at Kijabe Hosptal:
- They live in poverty. Half of the 40 million people that live in Kenya live on less than $2/day.
- Many live in rural areas with little to no access to any type of healthcare. When these people are either born with an abnormality or become sick, Kijabe Hospital is a place they can come to receive competent, compassionate care regardless of their inability to pay.
- AIC Kijabe Hospital serves the local population, which is primarily Kikuyu. But patients also come from Nairobi, Naivasha, Nakuru and all corners of Kenya and beyond. In addition, the Somali community (a large unreached people group) of Kenya and bordering countries has “adopted” the hospital as their facility of preference. Other unreached people groups, including members of Kenya’s Asian and white communities and other ethnic groups also find their way to Kijabe for medical needs.
“He Heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
