“We have seen Covid-19 spreading in the counties and the health workers who we rely on should be protected from infection while serving the public. That is why we have donated PPEs to more than 15 counties and we continue to identify where there is a need. We are also focusing on improving service delivery in maternal healthcare which is one of our key focus areas,” said Joseph Ogutu, Chairman, Safaricom Foundation.

Murang’a County is among the 12 counties that have so far benefited from Safaricom Foundation’s Ndoto Zetu initiative which is in its second phase.
