The County Government of Nyeri under the leadership of H.E Governor Mutahi Kahiga has partnered with benefactors from Minnesota- The United States of America, led by Gregory Elsher and Robert Smith in construction of a maternity wing at Mugunda Clinic in Kieni West sub-county. The Delegation paid a courtesy call to the Governor’s Office on Tuesday 16th April 2019
The team has been overseeing construction at the clinic and is currently doing roofing at the facility. The project is expected to be completed by June 2019 and will later on assist in equipping the clinic. Some of the funds raised by the benefactors have been drawn from family and friends in The United States.
It is important to note that this is a community driven project which also involved women from the community in construction work.
The County Government of Nyeri also promised to equip the clinic by providing medicine, clinical officers, nurses and a lab technician. This will be a major boost, as it will increase access to emergency obstetric and neonatal services.
“A wealthy county with happy, healthy and secure people.’’
