June 4, 2020: More donations continued to stream into Kenyatta National Hospital, whose health workers are on the frontline battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the State Department of Livestock, Kenya Dairy Board, and Devyani Industries gave dairy products worth Sh6.2million.
KNH Board Chairman Mr. George Ooko, while thanking the team for their generous donation said the milk and other milk products will be distributed to patients and staff.
“Two things thrill me about this donation…one is your generosity. The other is your continued faith in your mandate. Being grateful and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. So, on behalf of the Kenyatta National Hospital’s Board of Directors, we appreciate your contribution,” Mr. Ooko.
His sentiments were echoed by KNH Chief Executive Dr. Evanson Kamuri: “As a hospital, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for this gesture. It may appear a small act but to us, it goes the extra mile to remind us that we have people who care about us and appreciate our service during the current times. We truly value this partnership.”
Dr. Kamuri said the donations will go a long way in nourishing the lives of the frontline health workers, as they continue to offer essential services to Kenyans.
Mr. Vijay Singh, Devyani Industries Chief Executive thanked KNH for the opportunity to them to assist frontline healthcare workers in the fight against Covid-19.
Principal Secretary, State Department of Livestock Mr. Harry Kimtai said the donation will further enhance the dietary needs for staff as they continue battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
Separately, Serena Hotels and Diamond Trust Bank have commenced a 30-day initiative to jointly provide 200 hot meals per day to frontline COVID-19 health workers.
