ABC Bank has supported the AIC Kijabe Hospital Cancer Run with a cash donation of Sh100,000.
ABC Bank Group CEO Sridhar Natarajan presented the cheque to the hospital’s CEO Mary Mshindi at the bank’s Head Office in Westlands.
The hospital is organizing the run to raise funds to support its oncology unit that focuses on diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
There has been a sharp increase in the number of new cancer cases in Kenya, calling for private and faith-based health care facilities to step in to supplement the government’s investment in providing care to patients.
“ABC Bank understands the struggle many cancer patients go through especially when they are unable to afford treatment. That is why we support this initiative” , noted Sridhar.
Thanking the bank for its generosity, Mshindi said the hospital subsidizes the cost of treatment to help patients and their families overcome the financial and emotional burden associated with cancer.
