The Sarova Hotels and Resorts 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.
Sarova’s program which will run for 30 days will see the hotel group 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 recognize the bravery and commitment of the medical workers in the facilities who have put their lives on the line to lead the war on 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,” said Mr. Kariuki.
‘It is very important that we recognize and encourage 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,” he added.
Mr. Kariuki encouraged Kenyans to adhere to the guidelines issued by The Ministry of Health to help overcome the virus.
While receiving the first batch of lunch Kenyatta National Hospital Chief Executive Officer Dr. Evanson Kamuri said “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.”
