ICGI conducted the first medical mission of its own kind to Kapsabet District, currently Nandi County, in Rift Valley, Kenya in 2011. A team of 16 missionaries from USA that included Medical Doctors, Registered Nurses, Occupational therapists,Mental health professionals and Religious leaders paved the way for future medical missionaries to the Communities in Kenya. The team raised $10,000 to support a community health center project that was named Kapsirchoi Faith Clinic. With support from the missionaries from USA, the county government of Nandi and local churches, the Faith clinic is self-sustaining and serves over 10,000 residnce of the Nandi community.

About the Founder of ICGI
The president and founder of I Care Grace international is Jennifer Khaziga Kilel.
I Care Grace International was founded by Dr. Jennifer Kilel, a native of Western Kenya and a current resident of Virginia in the USA. The inspiration came not only from her humble beginning as a community health nurse in Kenya but from her mother Lois Isendi Lusiji, who was a renowned traditional midwife in Vihiga country, Western Province in Kenya. She recalls her mother helped pregnant women and performed home deliveries under extraneous circumstances due to a lack of hospital close to the community and poverty. Women could not afford to go to the district hospital “she said” Majority of the services were free and others thanked her by giving her a female chicken, if it survived, was a gift that kept on giving.
