The staff and students of The Co-operative University of Kenya participated in The Mater Hospital’s noble cause dubbed Mater Heart Run “Touching a child’s heart” which was held on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at KICC as part of CUK’s corporate social responsibility.
The Mater Hospital has a Cardiac Program that was begun about 20 years ago after researching and finding out that very little cardiac work of good quality was being carried out in the country.
In that line, the Mater Hospital launched The Mater Heart Run which was started in 2002 as one of the main fundraising avenues for the Cardiac program that seeks to cater to children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to get world-class cardiac treatment and Medicare.
This noble cause has seen over 3,000 heart procedures that have prevented premature deaths and radiated healthy and happy lives thanks to the values of the Sisters of Mercy, which emphasizes compassion for all and seeks to uplift the lives of the underprivileged in the society.
The Co-operative University being a hub of the co-operative movement will continue supporting The Matter Hospital in its noble course as part of the University’s Corporate Social Responsibility. CSR activity.
