Kenya –Kijabe

Kijabe, Kenya, means “place of the wind”

Kijabe is located on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, 30 miles northwest of the Kenyan capital of Nairobi. With a population of 17,000, the town of Kijabe is a community of small landholders, subsistence farmers, teachers, and medical professionals. A longtime base for missionaries in East Africa, Kijabe is home to a hospital, a Christian boarding school, and a Bible college

Since 2011, the Serge team in Kijabe has served in the areas of healthcare and education at Kijabe Hospital.

Members of the team are also actively involved in resource mobilization for Kijabe Hospital and community engagement with a local coffee shop. They also serve as a home base for multiple Serge missionary kids who board at Rift Valley Academy.

What We Do in Kijabe

The Serge team in Kijabe provides health care and attention to personal needs, extending compassion to those in need, giving glory to God.

They also mentor and train African medical residents, interns, and clinical officers, who serve in multiple areas of the hospital in training and hands-on medical care.

Patient fees at Kijabe Hospital are intentionally kept low, even by African standards, in order to accommodate and serve the most vulnerable patients. Nonetheless, there are still some patients who are unable to pay their medical bills. Funds donated to Friends of Kijabe will go directly towards paying the expenses incurred by the most vulnerable patients.
