I juni 2019 slogs dörrarna upp till vår nybyggda hälso- och mödravårdsklinik på Kenswed. Kliniken, som finansieras av ZBF tillsammans med våra partnerorganisationer Lööf Foundation och Rejlers AB, är ytterligare ett tillskott till Kenswed Community. Kliniken är en viktig förutsättning i Kenswed-modellen för att kunna fortsätta arbeta mot våra mål att tillhandahålla bra förutsättningar för Kensweds elever och samhället runtomkring. Kenswed Hospital kommer till att börja med fokusera på att tillhandahålla prenatal vård (före födsel) till gravida kvinnor, samt allmän hälso- och sjukvård och sexuell utbildning för ungdomar. Dessutom har kliniken börjat hjälpa till vid förlossningar. Vårt mål är att ge bästa möjliga sjukvård i kenyansk standard till alla som kommer hit. Här kan du se en film om Kenswed Hospital. 

On January 11, at 23:17, a healthy baby boy named Brave was born at Kenswed Hospital. The first ever baby born there!​

Whitney, the mother, said she found out about the Kenswed Hospital just by passing it one day when she was 7 months pregnant as she lives in the rural area. She had been on previous checkups during her pregnancy at other facilities but felt that our clinic was clean, welcoming and that our staff really took their time with her which made her feel seen and cared for. During the day of her delivery, her water broke, and labor pains had started, so she had a short walk to Kenswed Hospital to give birth.​

She said the staff was very attentive to her and her needs.  When It came time to push, she pushed five times and the baby came out.  She said she didn’t feel to much pain during the delivery because our staff were surrounding her with support. Once baby Brave came out, He cried right away, and they placed him on her stomach. They took Brave to clean and check up and he was healthy.​ Whitney says giving birth at Kenswed hospital was the best experience of her life. ​
