Meru Residents Rejoice as Governor Kiraitu Did This to Curb Cancer Management in the County

The Governor of Meru County H.E. Kiraitu Murungi, in his ongoing robust efforts to address cancer menace in the County, has this morning issued a cheque worth Sh1 million to the Meru Hospice which provides palliative care and other management for cancer patients in Meru.

Governor Kiraitu also announced that Meru Hospice will form a long-term partnership with the Meru Mt. Kenya Run LTD Company, a subsidiary of the Meru County Investment Development Corporation (MCIDC), that organizes and manages the annual Meru Mt. Kenya Run whose objective is to raise funds for cancer management and environmental conservation in the County, so that the Hospice can receive annual contribution from the event’s proceeds.

The Governor also reiterated that the County is at advanced stages of establishment of the Meru Cancer Institute which is one of the only two such projects in the country that have been included in this year’s fiscal budget by the National Treasury. 

“With establishment of four new KMTC campuses (Kanyakine, Miathene, Maua and Kangeta) in the County which has happened under my leadership, we shall train sufficient personnel for cancer management, some of who will be seconded to Meru Hospice,” he added

The Governor has also committed that in the next term of his leadership he will be working on a massive project to bring the Sh600 million radiotherapy machine to Meru County to relieve the residents of the pain and expenses incurred in traveling to seek the services in Nairobi.
