Meru District Hospital


Help in the hospital

This hospital is the largest in Meru County. There are currently 110 hospital beds available and the government is planning to build a facility with 50 more beds in the near future. The hospital is funded by the government and offers free services to a specific group of citizens such as the elderly, children under 5, pregnant women and diabetics. If you want to work at Meru Hospital they would really appreciate it. They are also looking for people who are interested in a fundraising campaign, as the necessary utensils for a successful and hygienically correct working day are often missing.


If you are planning a fundraising campaign, we have put together a list of utensils and items that are always urgently needed


  • Oxygen concentration

  • Heart rate monitors

  • Gloves and masks

  • thermometer

  • Asthma sprays, inhalers

  • Office supplies

Excellent communication skills and customer-oriented behavior, good dealings with patients and their families. Multitasking at the high pace of the hospital. Be able to stand for long periods of time. Good appearance, professionalism and appropriate time management.
