Sanyati Baptist hospital is the nearest hospital for many small communities. The next hospital is about sixty miles down a very pot-hole filled path. People come from all over the county to receive very low, to no cost, medical care. Sanyati will not turn people away if they can not pay. Some people have even paid their medical bills with livestock.
