About Living Room

One journey made of many stories.

It all started with a question...

What does it look like to love?

In 2009, Living Room was created from the cries which were heeded from countless patients lying in anguish under the shade of trees; from mothers who helplessly watched their children writhe in needless pain; from health professionals who lacked training and access to essential tools. 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 in Kenya. Their stories are the panes of glass that make up the mosaic of our organization. We are challenged daily to learn more, listen better and love deeper.
