Kenyan billionaire and businessman Narendra Raval, who is also the chairman of Devki Steel Mills has declared that he is willing to sell all his assets and donate the cash towards the fight against Covid-19 in Kenya.
Devki Steel Mills has already pledged to donate Oxygen worth 100 million shillings to be used in government hospitals to battle the fast-spreading Coronavirus.
“If the need arises, I am ready to pledge all my assets to save my country and the people of Kenya from the Covid19 devil,” he said.
Those who know the billionaire say that his philanthropy is always beyond measure for those who always needed help from him.
The sentiments of Mr. Raval comes at a time Kenyans have been calling out specific Kenyan billionaires for remaining mute at a time the country needs them the most.
Raval has become the first billionaire to openly declare his support through donations towards the fight against Covid-19. President Uhuru Kenyatta had called on billionaires of goodwill to help the government fight the pandemic. Most have remained mute.
