SportPesa Foundation has boosted healthcare in Bomet County with a donation of Intensive Care Unit medical equipment to Longisa Hospital and the completion of a kitchen unit at Ndarawetta Health Center, which has been fully funded by the Foundation.

SportPesa CEO Captain Ronald Karauri officially handed over the ICU equipment worth Ksh1.2 million to Bomet County Governor H.E Dr. Hillary Barchok and the Longisa Hospital administration at the facility.

“I would like to sincerely thank SportPesa Foundation for the donation of these ICU beds and equipment that will go a long way in addressing the health challenges especially now that ICU units in nearby areas like Kisumu are full due to the new COVID variant,” said Governor Hillary Barchok adding that Longisa hospital as the biggest oxygen manufacturing plant in the area and supplies even private hospitals in the South Rift region.

SportPesa Foundation officially opened the Ndarawetta Dispensary Kitchen. In March, the foundation launched its maternal health initiative at this dispensary by donating equipment for the hospital’s new maternity wing and supporting the construction of a kitchen to serve the wing.

“In March this year, we committed to support maternal health across the country and continue to do it. SportPesa Foundation remains committed to supporting the women in this country, to ensure they have access to good maternal health care,” said SportPesa CEO Captain Ronald Karauri.

In providing the support, SportPesa Foundation is complementing the admirable work being undertaken by SportPesa 3rd Mega Jackpot winner Cosmas Korir who hails from Bomet county. Korir, who won Ksh208 million SportPesa Mega Jackpot in 2018, has used some of his winnings to help renovate various health facilities in Bomet County. This is in fulfillment of a promise that he made when he won.

“I thank SportPesa Foundation for donating this equipment. When I won, I committed to support my community, and assisting to renovate these facilities is only one step. I remain committed to doing so in order to help uplift my county,” said Mr. Korir who continues to game on the SportPesa platform.

“It is a privilege to be back in Bomet County, where we initially launched our maternal health initiative. Over and above opening the Ndarawetta Dispensary kitchen we are here to support Cosmas Korir, one of our winners. We are proud of the work he is doing to uplift his community and urge all winners to give back to the communities they come from,” added Captain Karauri.

Since the launch of its maternal health initiative, in March 2021, SportPesa has supported health facilities in Nairobi, Bomet, Kiambu, and Meru giving over Ksh10 million. SportPesa Foundation remains committed to supporting communities in areas of sports and education, maternal care, and ending period poverty by promoting menstrual hygiene projects.
