We have enhanced our partnership with Kenyatta National Hospital in the adopt-a-ward initiative. In 2016 we commissioned the second phase of renovation to pediatrics Ward 3A. The renovations covered general works in the wards, refurbishments to the washrooms and the staff room, paint works and purchase of office furniture and kitchen equipment and among other items.
In 2013 Dalbit Petroleum adopted a children’s ward at Kenyatta National Hospital, in Nairobi for a three years partnership. Besides renovating Pediatrics Ward 3A, Dalbit also purchased medical equipment installations. The company will continue to support the hospital.
Dalbit Petroleum Kenya has partnered with the Alliance High School and the Alliance Girls High School to raise funds towards scholarships for needy students in the two schools.
Dalbit Petroleum has donated Ksh2 million towards the endowment fund for the two schools. “We are proud to be associated with this noble cause that steps in to ensure that needy but bright students are not disadvantaged because of their backgrounds,” said Group Managing Director Margaret Mbaka when she handed over the Cheque.
Speaking during a joint alumni dinner for the two schools, Ms. Mbaka an old girl of the Alliance Girls High School, challenged the professionals to supplement the financial support with mentorship programmes for the students so as to develop an all rounded person for the future.
“In our days, mentoring was taken as an important personal duty particularly by the Alliance Schools alumni communities. Many of the old boys and girls who had passed through the schools would regularly and diligently spare considerable resources and time to guide us through various aspects of life,” she noted.
