Sarova Hotels and Resorts, Kenya’s first indigenous hospitality company, has volunteered to provide food to frontline healthcare workers at both Kenyatta National Hospital and Mbagathi Hospital in an effort to help the Government manage the Coronavirus pandemic that is threatening to stretch the limits of the country’s health facilities.
The program which will run for 30 days will see Sarova provide daily lunches to the more than 200 healthcare workers who are providing the most critical services to patients at the facility.
The move is a gesture by Sarova to say thank you and recognize the bravery and commitment of the heroes and heroines in the facilities who have put their lives on the frontline to lead the war to eradicate the virus.
While launching the exercise, Sarova Hotels and Resorts Managing Director Jimi Kariuki lauded the healthcare workers for their selfless devotion to save the lives of Kenyans during this trying period.
“As a Kenyan company we will continue working with the Government to lend our support in the fight against this deadly virus from all approaches. It is indeed a trying time for humanity and at the end, we must all work together to flatten the curve. It is very important that we recognise and encourage the healthcare workers who are working flat out every day to save lives. We are privileged as a country to have dedicated healthcare workers who we need to support in every possible way”. Mr. Kariuki explained.
He added “This is a deadly disease which can be fought through strict adherence to the recommended guidelines from the Ministry of Health. If we do so, we shall overcome”.
Kenyatta National Hospital Chief Executive Officer Dr. Evanson Kamuri highlighted that “Feeding frontline healthcare workers is a direct pat on the back that will boost their morale and make them feel appreciated. Thank you Sarova Hotels for this kind gesture.”
