Visa Oshwal, Capwell Foundation donate wheelchairs to Thika Level 5 Hospital

The management of Thika Level 5 Hospital is looking into ways to comfortably accommodate the high number of patients visiting the facility daily, especially in their outpatient department where they attend to over 1000 patients each day.

This was revealed by the Medical Superintendent Dr. Waturi Kibuti during an event to receive 15 wheelchairs donated to the hospital by the Thika Visa Oshwal Community and Capwell Foundation. Dr. Kabuti said that the hospital was limited in space and the expansion of the outpatient department was necessary. 

She appealed to partners to join hands with the hospital to develop enough infrastructures to facilitate proper medical care and treatment and effectively manage growing numbers of patients.

The Vice Chairman Thika Visa Oshwal Community Mr. Chetan Shah said that their gesture was necessitated by the need to improve the lives of the people around them and they would continue donate to various projects which touched the lives of people. Recently, Jain Youth League, an affiliate of the Visa Oshwal Community, donated 10 million shillings to put up an eye unit at the hospital.

Doreen Wairimu of Capwell Foundation explained some of the Corporate Social Initiatives they were undertaking to help the society they served. Such included the uji programme that they fed to over 19,000 school going children, education sponsorship and the girl-child reusable pads programme among others.
