Tenwek Hospital, Kenya

March 17, 2021

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of Christ!

SWMC FoundationAs for many throughout the world, the time of the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging, but we have seen repeatedly how God has met those needs throughout this time.

Now, our eyes turn toward the future, as we present to you a need sent to us by Dr. John Spriegel, Tenwek Hospital, Kenya.

Dr. Spriegel writes; “For years Medical Services has been one of the busy services at Tenwek which has been crying for more space. Now, as we grow our oncology and renal programs, we have designed a 7-bed unit addition called the Medical Ward Annex to meet this critical need.

The Medical Ward Annex will be one of the core areas caring for residual cases of COVID-19 coming to Tenwek (as our Kenyan epidemic curve is once again showing an increase of cases). So, in one way, this is a continuation of the COVID-19 effort. But it truly is more far-reaching than that as it directly benefits patients needing a higher intensity of care, telemetry, progressive care, and chemotherapy in-patients. The forecasted cost of this renovation is $25,000 to $30,000.

This really is the project which is on my heart that Tenwek & our patients need that needs funding. Please pray about it and see if it is a project which the SWMC Foundation can support.”

To meet this critical need;

The Southwestern Medical Clinic Foundation is introducing a Matching Gift Program of up to $15,000 to assist in the build of the Tenwek Hospital Annex Addition. We are asking you to prayerfully consider supporting this project. Through the Matching Gift Program your gift will be doubled as we work together to meet the needs Dr. Spriegel presents to us in this request.

Thanking you in advance for your support!
