NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 27 – Regional oil marketer, Dalbit Petroleum has handed over the refurbished paediatrics ward 3A at the Kenyatta National Hospital as part of the hospital’s adopt-a-ward program. The refurbishment works have been done in two sets at a total cost of Sh15 million.

Speaking when she handed over the new-look ward, Dalbit Petroleum Group Managing Director Margaret Mbaka said: “The renovations we are launching today have covered general works in the wards, refurbishments to the washrooms and the staff room, paint works and purchase of office furniture and kitchen equipment and among other items.

In the first phase of the project in 2013 Dalbit Petroleum had done extensive electrical works and donated beds, mattresses and procedure room equipment.

“At Dalbit Petroleum, giving back to the community is not something we do as a favor, but rather as a duty to the society,” said Mbaka.

Kenyatta National Hospital CEO Lily Koros urged other corporate organizations to join the adopt-a-ward initiative to supplement the hospital’s limited resources.

“This gesture by Dalbit Petroleum has changed the look and capacity of this ward,” she noted.

On her part Mbaka committed that the oil marketer’s partnership with Kenyatta National Hospital would be renewed and replicated across the countries the company operates.

“We continue to invest within the communities we operate in as we support key projects in Health, Education and Road Safety sectors.”

Apart from the financial support from Dalbit Petroleum, the oil marketer’s staff have spent time with the children admitted to the referral hospital as part of the firm’s initiative to involve its staff in its CSR initiatives, added Mbaka.

Dalbit Petroleum is a regional oil marketer operating in the Great Lakes and Southern Africa regions that began operations in Kenya in 2002.

The company engages in the procurement, trading and management of petroleum products within the Great Lakes and Southern Africa regions through partnerships.
