Kenyan billionaire and the chairman of Devki Group Narendra Raval has donated Ksh100 million worth of oxygen to government hospitals in the country.
The oxygen will be used to combat the deadly coronavirus that has infected 110 people in Kenya.
“I hereby confirm the pledge to donate oxygen worth Sh 100 million to all government hospitals throughout the country. Oxygen will be collected from our Mombasa, Ruiru, and Athi River Devki Steel Mills Ltd Factories in exchange of empty cylinders,” he said in a letter.
Narendra Raval also said that he was ready to dedicate all his assets if he was required to do so.
“If the need arises, I am ready to pledge all my assets to save my country and the people of Kenya from the Covid-19 devil,” Mr Naval posted on Twitter.
In January, Raval said his company was working with Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) to set up a Sh300 milion cancer centre as part of its corporate social responsibility.
