KIKUYU HOSPITAL ULTRASOUND MACHINE
With a legacy of over a century in operation, Kikuyu Hospital is one of the oldest public hospitals in Kenya – founded in 1908. It was originally established as an eye hospital but has now grown to provide comprehensive care to patientsfrom across East and Central Africa, catering to over 400 hundred outpatients per day, and up to 150,000 annually.
The Hospital also offers community outreach programmes to people with no access to treatment, such as those from marginalized communities, children homes, and homes for the aged. With approximately 8,000 admissions and 10,000 surgeries conducted annually, together with a full time workforce of 430 people, the positive impact of the hospital within the region is undisputed.
When Lotto Foundation was informed that their only ultrasound machine was quite dated and not producing clear scans, often leading to incorrect diagnosis, a grant of Ksh 4,000,000 was provided to replace the old equipment with a brand new machine.
