The Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital has credited over Ksh  25,000  to a stranded  family  unable to raise  Mortuary fee for their 6 Month old baby who passed away at the Facility.


Favor wangui Ngatho  the angel who only  lived  for  six months was admitted  at the  hospital on 30th December last year where she was later taken to the Intensive care  Unit at The Moi teaching and died of  Pneumonia .

According to the Moi Teaching and  referral Hospital Ceo Dr.Wilson Aruasa, Baby Favor Wangui spent  92,000 at the ICU for  two days  and  part of the money was cleared by the National Hospital Insurance  Fund  while a  balance of 25,081 has since  been credited  by the Hospital to allow  the  family proceed with the  Burial arrangements set for Today Thursday.


Jackyne Ngatho and the father Simon Ngatho  parents to baby Favor  were on Thursday overjoyed  when the Ceo intervened  in their  dilemma after  spending  hours at the Mortuary    unable to raise  Mortuary  fees to  proceed with the Burial arrangements .



“We have had  a number of  fundraising  to aid  her  burial today Thursday ,but  until 11:00am today  friends  and family  could not  raise  the amount , we  are grateful to the  CEO Dr Aruasa who has waived the money needed for  us to proceed with the Burial of  our  daughter”Said the  sobbing mother.


Baby Favour   has  finally  rested  at The  Kiplombe cemetery in Eldoret.


The Credit  Central Committee at the Moi Teaching and  Referral hospital  aids families unable to clear  hospital bills by approving credits  and  or engaging families on modes of  payment.
