Every Thursday is set aside for patients to meet at the Nairobi Hospice to share experiences and talk with the staff. It is a much needed change of environment for patients. The focus is on physical, economic, spiritual, social psychological and emotional needs of patients, care givers and their families.We are very grateful to all who have been supporting the day care through cash and kind.

We extend our appeal for more support from friends and well wishers for the success of the Day Care programme. Read more….
Most of the patients cared for by the Nairobi Hospice cannot afford to pay the subsidized costs. Therefore, the Hospice relies on funds raised on a regular basis to meet its operating expenses. Major activities include:
- Annual golf tournament,
- Annual charity walk
- Friend of the Hospice subscriptions
