Kijabe Hospital Sanitation Project (90106)

Kijabe Hospital delivers one of the most comprehensive healthcare services in East Africa. This 280-bed facility was built a century ago on the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, Kenya. Today it is equipped with nine operating theaters, a modern ICU, and dental, lab and pathology units. More than 25,000 children alone receive outpatient care annually.

As the medical and spiritual mission of the hospital have flourished, the aging infrastructure has been failing. The hospital’s yearly operating budget covers most day-to-day operations, but gifts are essential for capital developments.

The current sanitation system is in great disrepair and causing contamination of water supplies, including e-coli. It is in urgent need of overhaul and upgrades. Would you, or others that you know, be willing to partner with Kijabe Hospital?

The objectives of the Kijabe Sanitation Project are:

  • to provide a long-term, improved sanitation system with sufficient capacity to meet the hospital’s current and future demand
  • to provide a suitable secondary treatment system (provisionally, a wetlands-style oxidation treatment concept) in order to treat the discharge from the septic tanks to a quality suitable for discharge to the surrounding area
  • to replace failing septic-based system with centralized treatment ponds catering for projected doubling of output in 3 years (164 to 330m3/day)
