Mater Heart Run.

Simbisa Brands Kenya Limited offered great support in the planning for this years’ Mater heart run that is organized by Mater Hospital. We offered the hospital an in-kind partnership of about Kshs 500,000 and allowed them to sell their t-shirts in our outlets to raise funds for the walk. The run is purely to support kids with heart diseases. Over the years, Mater Heart Run has managed to get three cardiac missions with 134 heart surgeries and 206 catheterization procedures done by their local doctors and their partners outside of Kenya. They were also able to hold eight free cardiac outreach camps in various counties through which 14,937 children benefited from free Rheumatic Heart disease screening and health education
