Kipchimchim is a hostel located 30 minutes from Kericho in East Kenya. This hostel has 60 physically disabled children and 40 able children. The disabled children live at the hostel during the school year so that they may attend the school next door. Due to their disabilities, it would be impossible for the children to get to school from their homes.

Many of the disabilities can be corrected with surgery and physiotherapy. There are children with club foot, hydrocephalus, and many children have had their limbs amputated due to infection.

A physiotherapist comes every afternoon to give physiotherapy to the children. However, there is still a great need for surgeries, crutches, wheelchairs, physiotherapy equipment and prosthesis.
