COLLEGE TO BENEFIT FROM DONATION TO BOOST THE WAR ON COVID-19
KMTC will receive a bulk of the donation made by World Vision to the Ministry of Health in a move aimed at protecting the frontline workers and strengthening the war against COVID-19 in the Country.
“KMTC has without a doubt been a pillar in the fight against Corona virus,” said the Ministry’s Head of Special Programmes Dr. Kepha Ombacho during an event to receive the donation held at KMTC Headquarters on May 28, 2020. KMTC Campuses are currently being used as quarantine and isolation centres.
The donation included knapsack sprayers for disinfection of health facilities and public spaces, heavy duty gloves and face shields, among others.
KMTC CEO Prof. Michael Kiptoo said the donation will go a long way in ensuring that the quarantine and isolation facilities are up to standard and the service providers are well protected.
“We look forward to a continued partnership even after the Coronavirus,” the CEO said noting the importance of close collaboration with development partners in the achievement of the Universal Health Coverage agenda.
World Vision Country Director Ms. Lilian Dzodzo noted the commendable job the Ministry of Health and its affiliates have and continue to do in the fight against the disease. “It is because of you that we all are safe and we do not take that for granted,” she said assuring that World Vision would continue to support the Ministry’s endeavour to keep Kenyans safe.
