Many Kenyans travel long distances to receive the medical care they need to survive. They often arrive as strangers in an unfamiliar place, praying to God for healing.
Faith Aid partners with hospitals that offer specialized care that attracts families from all over the region, country, and continent. Faith Aid established the first Mustard Seed House location at Tenwek Hospital in early 2021 to provide Christian care for families who travel far from home for the medical needs of their children. We welcome the sick & suffering in Jesus’ name.
Patients traveling from long distances to receive specialized care can take up to six trips to the hospital. Hence, accommodation is a continual concern. The lack of accommodation leaves many impoverished families with tough choices – travel home, rely on well-wishers, sleep outside, on the floor of a church, or in vulnerable situations.
Most families of patients can not afford to pay for local lodging and feel very frustrated. Mustard Seed House allows us to serve and share the gospel with Faith Aid beneficiaries and other patients arriving at Tenwek Hospital with no place to stay.
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.Matthew 17:20
