Many people on this site were born in Nakuru War Memorial Hospital.

The photo on the left was taken by my brother Robin in August 2010. The hospital is deserted, a far cry from the efficient place that it was.

I was a patient there several times, my three brothers were all born there, my first girl-friend nursed there, several friends died there.

The Nakuru War Memorial Hospital played a big part in our lives. They have built another hospital behind it.

An epic true story about a Punjabi Muslim man, Seth Ibrahim Karimbux, whose strong determination to provide a stable and secure future for his family, compels him to seek it in Kenya, British East Africa. The story unfolds in Punjab, India in 1896 when Ibrahim Karimbux leaves his homeland, unbeknown to his family. With a few rupees in his pocket, he embarks by dhow for Mombasa and befriends some Indian traders shortly after his arrival. Ibrahim struggles to find means to support himself and finally succeeds, only to find himself in debt later. Eventually he joins a party of men heading for Nairobi, in hope of securing a small business for himself. Travelling by foot, they endure harsh realities of the African wilderness. Nairobi in 1897, was a bleak, swampy land devoid of habitation, although the pastoral Maasai used it as a watering ground for their cows. . . .

"Daisy’s Daughter is a poignant, personal story of a woman whose soul is embedded in Africa. Born and raised in Kenya, as a young bride she and her husband establish two farms, until political turmoil and unrest precipitate a move to the coast, where they establish a successful sport fishing business. The continually worsening political situation leads to a move from Kenya.
After scouring Zimbabwe and South Africa for a suitable farm, they eventually purchase farming land in Angola. It is not long before their hopes and dreams are shattered, when civil war breaks out and forces thousands of people to flee the country. After dangerous travel via escorted convoy, the family arrives in Namibia and soon settle on a ranch, where over a number of years lives are rebuilt, although not without further personal loss and heartache along the way. This is a captivating, passionate story of an amazingly strong woman, who faces challenges head on, with courage and determination. Through her vivid descriptions of people, animals and environments, the sensuous, unpredictable and irregular heartbeat of Africa is palpable."

Anyone who has lived in Africa should read this book.
