The ArrowWeb Community Hospital is a sanctuary for the thousands of residents of the slum area of Kayole-Soweto in outlying Nairobi. Since 2005 they have slowly been building up their facilities in order to be able to cater for and help more and more.

They have now been offered assistance by AID 2 Hospitals Worldwide, a remarkable UK operation that refurbishes used and redundant hospital equipment that the NHS and private hospitals in the UK no longer need. The refurbishment and equipment are provided freely but funds must be provided to cover shipping, utilising established links with existing charities and organisations in each destination to ensure safe delivery.
