Welcome Friends of Tenwek!
We are thrilled to share the FOT 2022 campaign appeal for Tenwek Hospital’s continued growth and impact a medical and spiritual mission being fulfilled every day in the highlands of western Kenya. This campaign is dedicated to the loving memory of Sue Steury, faithful wife to Dr. Ernie Steury and devoted missionary at Tenwek. Sue’s dedication and service has had a lasting impact, and we are delighted to honor her legacy.
There was incredible progress in 2021, thanks to your generosity and compassion. The Sue Steury building restoration is fully funded and nearing completion, essential infrastructure improvements are underway, the all-new HMIS is implemented and live, thousands of dollars’ worth of vital equipment has been purchased, and Tenwek continues to expand its training programs with increasing numbers of medical residents, nursing students, and chaplain trainees.
While much is accomplished, there is still much that needs to be done to support the exponential growth of Tenwek and its ministries. 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of Tenwek Hospital and the 10th anniversary of Friends of Tenwek. During this milestone year, please join us as we extend our hearts and our treasure to answer God’s call for Tenwek Hospital. We are blessed to have faithful partners like you invest in the future of this hospital and its vital ministries, strengthening Tenwek’s ability to fulfill its purpose— “We Treat, Jesus Heals”—in Bomet, greater sub-Saharan Africa, and beyond.
