Lotto Foundation partnered with CURE International Hospital to purchase a HDU (High
Dependency Unit) patient monitor and a ward monitor. The CURE International Hospital is an orthopedic hospital that serves the entire country and neighboring East African countries.
The centre specializes in orthopedic and ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgery for children and has conducted over 30,000 operations on disabled children in the 18 years since its inception. The key beneficiaries of this project are Kenyan children with disabilities who without treatment would likely suffer a lifelong debilitating condition, social stigma attached to their disability, and economic deprivation due to reduced productivity.
Needless to say, the initiative also greatly benefits their families. Her Excellency Margret Kenyatta, First Lady of the Republic of Kenya, who commissioned the machines, thanked Lotto Foundation for its dedication and commitment to improving healthcare nationwide. To date, the Foundation has granted Ksh 823,660 to the hospital, which will go towards the purchase of both ward and HDU monitors.
