There are myriad ways to partner with us in what we’re doing.
1. JOIN OUR PARTNERSHIP TEAM
We work in Kenya on a volunteer basis – neither of us receive a salary or reimbursement from the hospital. Our living here (groceries, rent, medical care, school fees, fuel…) is completely funded by partner churches, friends, and family donating through SIM – people like you.
Please consider being a part of our financial partnership team, we need you!
From Australia – Visit SIM Australia’s website to set up a recurring or one-time donation. You can also send a cheque to SIM Australia, PO Box 42, Penshurst NSW 2222 – make sure to designate it to Steere, SIM Number 35701.
From the US / other countries – Go to SIM USA – complete “Steere” and number “35701”, and then follow prompts to donate to our support. You can also send a check directly to SIM USA, P.O. Box 7900, Charlotte, NC 28241 – make sure to designate it to Steere, SIM Number 35701.
2. KEEP IN TOUCH
We are grateful for and need your support and encouragement. As we work and live half a world away from you, we are as dependent on contact with you as we were when we lived nearby.

3. HELP A CHILD
Kijabe Hospital is a not-for-profit, church-owned hospital. Operating expenses are only partially covered by low patient fees – the remainder comes from volunteer services provided by expatriate missionary doctors, donations and fundraising. In order to serve the poor, fees are kept as low as possible through careful management of resources.
Some of the children we see come from families who can afford to pay the relatively low hospital bills, others come from supportive communities who band together and raise the money, and a few have a form of medical insurance. But there are many others who can’t afford to pay even a little.
If you would like to contribute to the Needy Children’s Fund, please click here to give via Giving Tools – all you need is a credit card and your donation will go directly to this fund, which ensures that we never, ever turn away a sick kid who needs care.
4. PRAY WITH US
We are regularly updating specific prayer points on our prayer log, so check back regularly. If praying isn’t your thing, simply thinking about us and dropping us a line every now and then to let us know you have us on your mind would be wonderful.
