Spinal injury hospital gets funds for borehole

31 March 2014, 11:22

Nairobi - The National Spinal Injury Hospital is poised to benefit from a donation of KES 2.3 million that the K-Rep Bank has donated to the health facility towards the sinking of a borehole.

The project would ensure the hospital has enough water by June this year.

According to Dr. Soren Otieno of the National Spinal Injury Hospital, the water supplied by the Nairobi County government was not reliable.

“It has been a challenge for the hospital because we do not get reliable water from the City Council. So, sinking a bore hole will be a plus for the hospital because the nature of work here for the nurses, the staff, so we need a lot of water,” said Otieno.

He said that the hospital had already erected water tanks in readiness for the water from the borehole.

Otieno added that spinal injuries were a major disability and its patients needed to be taken care of well for them to fit into the society.

Otieno asked well-wishers to come forward and participate in helping the victims of spinal injuries by making donations in whichever way.

Speaking at the event, K-Rep Managing Director, Albert Ruturi, said that the hospital would have water before the end of June.

“Before the end of June, they will have water flowing in their taps,” said Ruturi.
