About the project
Health workers were in the frontlines of managing the COVID-19 disease in Uasin Gishu County. However, they lacked adequate personal protective equipment (PPEs). This posed the risk of coronavirus infections being transmitted among health workers and the public.
Safaricom Foundation, in partnership with SPEAK, handed over personal protective equipment (PPEs) worth KES 1 million to 7 health facilities in the county including the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital. Hand sanitizers were also distributed to 2 markets and 6 bus stops in the county including World Bank and Municipal Markets.
The PPEs included laboratory coats, hand sanitizers, eye protectors, medical masks and gloves.
The health workers in Uasin Gishu County can provide effective healthcare without being at risk of infections.
