Port Florence Group of Community Hospitals is supporting 18 students by paying their school fees as part of the corporate social responsibility.
The group Chief Executive Officer Paul Oloo says they have been supporting needy but bright students over the years.
Oloo says most of the children are supported by Port Florence from primary, secondary to colleges across the country.
Port Florence operates 34 outlets spread across the counties in the country and they must give back to the community.
Dr Joshua Oron, the founder of the hospital had pledged to purchase school items to Ann Blessing Omwaka, a girl who hails from Nyalenda and was threatening to commit suicide for lack of school fees.
Speaking during the handing over of the school items to the girl, Oloo says they received 300 applications for bursary from needy students.
But due to finances constraints, Oloo says the hospital has taken just a few whom they will support their education as he called po other corporate bodies to come in and help where necessary.
The girl’s mother, Luck Ombok thanked the hospital for their support that will ensure her daughter who had her school fees paid by Erick Okeyo goes to school.
Blessing on the other hand equally applauded the gesture the hospital has accorded her a she promised to work hard.
She is joining Asumbi High School in Homa Bay next week.
