We are a registered UK charity helping to bring compassion, care and support to children and adults living and dying with a terminal illness in Kenya.

Hospice Care Kenya was founded in 1991 to support the newly-opened Nairobi Hospice, the first palliative care hospice in Kenya. Today there are over 70 hospices and palliative care units across Kenya. However there remain many gaps in palliative care provision in Kenya.

We believe that no one should die in pain, so we work closely with local partners in Kenya to identify need, and develop and deliver quality palliative care.

In this clip our patron Mike Wooldridge OBE explains why he is a long term supporter and patron of Hospice Care Kenya:

“That HCK is now enabling community health volunteers to extend the reach of palliative care in rural areas, looking out for people who might have cancer and supporting them, seems to be ground-breaking to me, and this appeal to fund Hospice Care Kenya thoroughly deserving of support”.
