Opened in 2009, the Clinic is the first clinic in Arusha that offers a range of medical treatments and operations. Although it is a private clinic, patients only pay minimal treatment fees.

The clinic is supported by the Baptist Church in Arusha, which also supports a school, and two parishes in the United States.
