After arriving in Nairobi for her third visit to Kenya in March 2012 Cheryl and another violin teacher Cindy Angel were taken by Leroy and Joann to visit Kijabe Hospital. Kijabe is located about 50 kilometers northwest of Nairobi on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. The Maasai word Kijabe means “Place of the Wind.”  They played for patients and visited the children’s ward where they passed out knitted baby hats. For more information about the Kijabe Hospital  see their web site http://www.kijabehospital.org/ and a web site for the Kenya Hospices and Palliative Care Association  http://kehpca.org/ that tells more about what the challenges of health care are across Kenya and definitely watch the film, “Life Before Death”
