Health: Mobile Clinics, Dispensary, Hospital, and Community Health Evangelism

Grace4Kenya has a "holy-istic" four branch approach to alleviating generational poverty through health, education, faith, and opportunity.

Mobile Outreach Medical Clinics: Private donors and the Grace4Kenya Founders started the BFC mobile medical clinics and have supported them since 2007. Each month the medical team visits and sets up a temporary clinic for the day in four remote villages. They provide free well baby immunizations, prenatal care, and medical care for people of all ages with acute illnesses. In 2020, the mobile clinics provided 2,000 free visits for medical care to the people in West Pokot County who otherwise would not have had access to medical care. The average cost of running these clinics is $4/person/visit.

Bendera Clinic and Hospital: The Bible Faith Church (BFC) Medical Dispensary in Bendera was started as an organizational headquarters for the mobile clinics and has grown to a full-time clinic offering well-baby care, pre- and post-natal care, and urgent care for illnesses and emergencies. It includes its own laboratory and pharmacy. In 2020, the clinic had 2100 outpatient visits, treated 150 overnight ER patients, and delivered 60 babies in the Kapenguria community, the largest city in West Pokot County. After a decade of providing care, the clinic has become self-sustaining.

BFC Bendera Hospital was constructed in 2019-2020 to accommodate the outpatient clinic and Emergency Room on the ground floor and then add maternity, pediatric and adult care as funding, furnishing, and staffing allows. As of the first quarter of 2021, over seventy babies have been delivered and over 200 people treated overnight in the ER. The hospital was approved early in 2021 as a level 3b non-surgical 24-bed inpatient hospital. Thanks to a generous donation, the Maternity Ward will be fully furnished and equipped in the second quarter, so that it can function on its own floor instead of in the ER. The pediatric ward and adult rooms still need funding for furnishings and equipment.

Community Health Evangelism (CHE): In 2012 members of the Kenyan medical team were trained in the global strategy of Community Health Evangelism (chenetwork.org) and started a pilot program in the village of Kaprom which was already being served by the mobile clinics. Through local training conferences held at the BFC Bible College, CHE has now expanded to other villages in the county. CHE integrates discipleship and church planting with disease prevention and community-based development. Community Health Evangelism (CHE) is a Christ-centered educational program that is being used by churches and organizations in 126 countries. CHE equips communities to identify issues and mobilize resources to achieve positive, sustainable change. Lives and communities are transformed as people come to Christ and work together to address local needs.
