NAIROBI, Kenya, Sept 1 – Safaricom Foundation has injected Kshs 3.6 million into the renovation of an outpatient wing for maternity services at Rironi Health Centre in Kiambu county.

Safaricom Foundation trustee, Githinji Gitahi, who spoke during the official opening of the facility, affirmed the firm’s role to financially facilitate county health facilities in order to improve the delivery of services.

“We are proud of this partnership, we look forward to many more and to ensure healthy mother and child relationships and ultimately contribute to the wealth of Kiambu County,” he said.
