A Kind Gesture Can Reach A Wound That Compassion Can.
By Irene Akenga Nandi in Fundraiser stories
John Mbugua, a 10-month old baby, suffered burns after he accidentally fell into boiling porridge in his home at Manguo village in Limuru. He was then rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital where he received his treatment for seven weeks.
Upon being discharged, his parents Lucy Muthoni Mbugua and Robert Githire were unable to come up with the balance of Ksh 111,127 needed to offset his bill. A well wisher and community mobilizer, Robert Githire, launched a funds drive at M-changa to help the family offset the bill at Kenyatta National Hospital.
The campaign has so far successfully raised Ksh. 29,287 with the help of 94 supporters.
