“Health is a major priority of the Ndoto Zetu initiative, which aims to empower communities. We have now started commissioning health projects in this latest phase in response to the proposals we received from Kenyans.

Maternal health is a key area where we need to boost the capacities of facilities and health workers to improve service delivery. Our long-term vision as a Foundation is to reduce maternal and infant mortality to near zero,”

said Joe Ogutu, Chairman, Safaricom Foundation.

The KES 2 million investment in the projects has ensured that the health centres are well-equipped to handle medical emergencies.
