About 400 employees, friends, and supporters of Kijabe Hospital participated in a fundraiser yesterday. Led by police escort and full marching band we walked from the top of the highway 5 km down the windy road to Kijabe Hospital.
This was all accomplished to raise funds for the upcoming addition to Kijabe Hospital. They are seeking to increase the number of surgical theatres, and expand the palliative care and maternity wards.
Donated funds to our project account supported the dental staff to buy t-shirts and participate. We walked as a team and waved at the onlookers. (Can you spot Malin?)
Although this march did not raise a large sum of money, I believe the morale of the hospital was lifted. I think God was glorified as we marched to the drums and trumpets and the Kenyan song, "Things are getting better, Things are getting better, With the Lord on our side, We can be assured Things are getting better, Things are getting better."
