Bomet Annex Update

Tenwek Hospital is poised to bring its healing mission and Gospel message to the growing city of Bomet, Kenya in an exciting new way. The hospital will soon open a much-needed outpatient clinic in the bustling city which is home to more than 110,000 people.

The need for a city-based clinic is urgent. The hospital’s outpatient clinic treats, on average, 430 patients each day. It often takes the entire day for patients to be registered and evaluated, undergo tests, receive care, and be discharged. As one nurse explained, “Our work is never done. No matter how many people we see today, tomorrow we will be full again.”

Construction is underway, but not all funds are available to complete the project. Learn how you can help Tenwek reach the finish line!
