Since we first began working in rural Kenya in 2006, Common Hope for Health has pursued a fundamentally moral mission: to serve those in greatest need. We are, of course, far from having accomplished this mission. But we have made progress. Over the past nine years, mothers, fathers, and children who previously had nowhere to turn when sick have gained access to compassionate, often life-saving medical care at our health center. But this progress has also revealed a sobering -- and perhaps radical -- truth: medical care alone, at least in the conventional sense, is not enough.
