On Friday, December 2, rheintaler.ch writes: “The Hospital of Hope of the Rhein-Valley Hospital Association has financial problems. The continued existence of the hospital in Kenya “is acutely in danger”, the association informs the donors. The financial cushion has shrunk significantly in recent years. At the same time, the annual donation amount has decreased, and this with increased costs in Kenya, where the inflation rate is permanently high.” (Gert Bruderer)
Ruth Schäfer, who comes from eastern Switzerland, has been managing the hospital in Kenya for many years. The budget item for hospital management is shown at 15,000 francs.
