About the project
Ndanai Sub-County Hospital is a health facility in the South Rift county of Bomet. It had frequent power blackouts and water rationing which hampered operations at the hospital. Important medical procedures such as surgeries were affected when there was no power. This endangered the lives of patients who relied on the hospital for services.
The water rationing limited functions which needed sufficient water to be effective.
Safaricom Foundation set up a powerhouse and water harvesting system for KES 800,000.
The hospital is operating at full capacity with a backup generator whenever there is a power outage and they are harvesting enough water to use in case of water rations. The patients are having better services with operations at the hospital uninterrupted. More and more patients are using the health facility expanding its access to health care.
