“We have seen the dire effects that Covid-19 has had not only on our community but also our economy. The novel coronavirus has invaded every part of our country without restraint. While as a community we are so separated from each other, the Covid-19 crisis is also revealing how much compassion and empathy we have for each other,” Ivana said.
“We receive this extreme kind donation from BetKing Kenya with happiness because the need for oxygen in hospitals is up in the roof especially at this Covid-19 times. The supply has been inadequate since Covid-19 started and this will go a long way in dealing with the deficit,” said Mbagathi Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Loice Mutahi.
Derrick Mwangi, the Head of Marketing at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital said: “We want to thank BetKing and BOC Gases for this donation today. We are a COVID centre and so the need is so much and this will go a long way in seeing that we bridge the gap that we have.”
