PCEA Chogoria Mission hospital has become the latest beneficiary of SportPesa Foundation’s Maternal Health Care community programme, receiving various equipment worth Ksh1.7 million to boost its maternal unit services.
SportPesa Foundation has supported the hospital by donating baby cots, incubators, neonatal equipment among others worth more than Ksh1.7 million to the hospital located in Tharaka Nithi County.
“Our CSR is aimed at improving maternal healthcare as part of our contribution as a corporate citizen in helping the government address high maternal deaths and infant mortality rates,”
said SportPesa CEO Captain Ronald Karauri.
“The donation will go a long way in supporting the hospital to provide quality healthcare for the people in this area.”
Chogoria Hospital is currently owned and managed by the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) and is a not-for-profit based organisation that provides quality healthcare services and training in Tharaka Nithi County.
In addition, SportPesa Foundation donated kits to 15 football clubs in the county under the Kits for Africa project.
“We remain committed to supporting maternal health and sports. We must support our youth to meet their potential in sports and by providing them with kits is only one way of ensuring they have the right equipment to pursue their dreams,”
added Captain Karauri.
Since SportPesa Foundation launched the maternal health pillar In March 2021, the organisation has donated medical equipment to health facilities in Nairobi, Kiambu, Bomet and now Tharaka Nithi County.
