In 2009, Living Room International was created to meet the needs of the seriously ill in Western Kenya. Through the small but essential act of listening and loving, Living Room saw a tremendous need to work with the community to bring hospice and palliative care services to the small Kenyan village of Chebaiywa. Over the past 10 years, Living Room has been a life-giving and transformative refuge for thousands of people all throughout Kenya. We have developed community partnerships to work side-by-side with other Kenyans to build two hospices/hospitals in Western Kenya, a home-based care program, and a funeral home. We are challenged daily to learn more, listen better, and love deeper.
To create a community of compassion for Kenyans in need of hospice care.
Every person is created in the image of God. More than treating a disease, we care for a person holistically.
To extend quality physical, psychological, and spiritual care to patients and their families.
To provide dignity and quality of life to people in Kenya affected by life-threatening illnesses through holistic care and education.
We are a reflection of the lives that pass through our doors.
These are their faces. Here are their stories.
Jacob’s journey is a powerful story of loss met with grace & redemption.
We are united by our commitment to see the mission and vision of Living Room accomplished in every aspect of the organization.
