One year ago, FOT produced “Tenwek Tomorrow,” a catalog describing the many ways FOT benefactors and friends could support God’s amazing work at Tenwek Hospital. That publication cast an exciting vision for Tenwek’s continued growth and impact – a medical and spiritual mission that is being fulfilled every day in the highlands of Kenya.
Essential infrastructure improvements are underway; new medical residents, nursing students, and School of Chaplaincy trainees are being educated; and Tenwek’s Community Health and Development initiatives are making a significant regional impact. And while much is being accomplished – much more needs to be done.
When FOT’s Board of Directors gathered in October for their annual meeting, they thoughtfully considered the strategic needs Tenwek leaders placed before them. With faith and in one accord, they agreed to launch the most ambitious fundraising campaign for FOT since its founding in 2012.
For the first time, FOT will sponsor a consolidated fundraising campaign to address specific infrastructure needs that are critically important to Tenwek Hospital. The Board believes that by supporting these needs, which have been identified by Tenwek leadership, it will significantly strengthen the hospital’s essential treating, teaching, and sending mission.
“FOT has been blessed with hundreds of generous and faithful donors and prayer partners through the years,” notes Dr. David Hoover, FOT president. “And the many visiting medical staff we have welcomed to Tenwek have made immeasurable contributions. The support demonstrated by these true ‘Friends of Tenwek’ give us all great confidence that we can meet our goal.”
Details about this new initiative will be announced early in 2022. Please pray with us as we finalize plans for this transformational campaign.
