Beyond Zero mobile clinic campaign enters homestretch

The Beyond Zero mobile clinic programme entered the home stretch Wednesday when First Lady Margaret Kenyatta handed over the 45th unit to Nandi County.

With only Murang’a and Nairobi counties remaining to receive the mobile clinics out of the 47 counties in the country, the First Lady said her efforts would not have been possible without the backing she received from Kenyans. “All the clinics we deliver represent the very best of Kenya,” the First Lady said today in Kapsabet as she handed over the 45th Beyond Zero mobile clinic to Nandi County.

The First Lady pointed out that the clinics she has been delivering reflect the spirit of generosity that exists amongst Kenyans.

She also said the support to the Beyond Zero initiative also exhibitsthegrowingsenseof responsibility among citizens. The Beyond Zero initiative said the First Lady, is about supplementing the efforts of the County and National Governments in improving maternal and child health.

“It is also about ensuring that expectant mothers have access to safe places to deliver their babies. We also try to ensure that essential vaccinations for new borns are given promptly and that treatment for sick children is readily available,” said the First Lady.

The First Lady commended the Nandi County Governor’s spouse, Florence Lagat, for the many great initiatives she has undertaken to support the welfare of children, girls and mothers.

The mobile clinic was sponsored by the Cooperative Bank of Kenya. The First Lady thanked the bank for its continued support to the Beyond Zero initiative.

Since she began the Beyond Zero initiative slightly over two years ago, the First Lady said, the success achieved has largely been through the support of all Kenyans.

Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu commended the First Lady for championing maternal and new born healthcare, saying her efforts have greatly contributed in achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
