Friends of Tenwek

Friends of Tenwek is a non-profit charitable organization growing an actively-engaged global community to empower Tenwek Hospital (Bomet, Kenya) to provide excellent compassionate healthcare, spiritual ministry and training for service through capacity-building, financial resources and spiritual support.


A big THANK YOU to our many generous donors who recently gave over $200k to fund critical renovations to the Sue Steury Building! Tenwek is facing a strict timeline to move the COVID-19 Holding Area and Care Unit (CHACU) to the Steury Building and faithful FOT benefactors stepped up to provide the necessary funds. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Plan a Medical Mission Visit

Bring your expertise and desire to serve the Lord to Tenwek Hospital through a short-term medical missionary assignment. With COVID-19 travel restrictions eased and testing more available, visits by short-term staff are beginning to resume at pre-pandemic levels.
Service at Tenwek has never been more meaningful or needed.

“Donor support for a hospital is very unique and it frees us to continue serving poor patients.
Without our partnership with FOT we would not be able to do some of the things we are doing today.”
