For anyone who is interested in donating to the hospital:
- You may send checks to Walker Robinson who would convey it to the right people at Samaritan's Purse.
- You may also choose to donate to the "McCropders", which you can do through the www.mccropders.com website. There is a link at the upper right-hand side of the front page for "Donation information". It looks like you have to donate to an individual family, but ultimately it is all going for the same cause.
- You may visit www.wgm.org/needypeoplefund to support the hospital’s Needy Patient Fund. You may also make checks payable to World Gospel Mission and write Tenwek Hospital or Tenwek’s Needy Patient Fund on the memo line. Send donations to:
