KMTC students receive equipment worth more than Kshs 200,000
Two KMTC Nairobi campus students have today received equipment worth Kshs 240,000 from the German committee for the prevention of blindness, a German NGO, through Salus Oculi Kenya.
The two students, Jack Jalang’o and Gideon Chelelgol, were presented with a complete set of retinoscope and ophthalmology each to enhance their learning. The two from the Clinical medicine department are currently studying the higher diploma course in Ophthalmology and cataract surgery.
Presenting the equipment the Salus Oculi Kenya Director Mr. Michael Ng’eno encouraged the students to use the equipment to gain more knowledge and then use that knowledge to serve the community.
KMTC Nairobi Deputy Principal (Finance & Academics) Mr. Amos Kipsumbai thanked the partner for their continued support to the college. “We are grateful for the support you have accorded our students for the past 20 years,” he said adding that “our continued working relationship is an indication that organizational objectives for the two organizations are being met.”
These sentiments were echoed by the class coordinator Ms. Carol Tanui and the two students who also said that their learning journey at the college has now become easier because of the sponsorship and support from the organization.
Salus Oculi Kenya partners with three German NGOs: Deutsches Blindenhilfswerk (DBHW), Ananse and See Africa to prevent avoidable blindness and help visually impaired learners.
