About 130 km north of Nairobi, on a 2500-meter-high plateau, bordered by Aberdare National Park, is the North Kinangop hospital in the Kikuyu land. Founded in 1965 by some missionaries of the diocese of Padua, the hospital, headed by Don Sandro Borsa, grew up following the principle of self-sustainability. Man and nature collaborate and support each other. All products are reused for the life of the hospital and sold to make or purchase the necessary facilities, including staff homes. The hospital is a vital service for the local population and reaches a basin of 350.000 users, with a capacity of about 220 beds. Medical staff counts 200 people, including physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, administrative and support personnel, and another 150 employees work in craft and farm activities.
