Main activity   The Handing Over Ceremony of The Project for the Completion and Equipping of Neema Hospital which had its Grant Contract signed in February 2013, was held in Kahawa Sukari, Kiambu County and witnessed by among others, officials from the Embassy of Japan in Kenya.
 
The grant provided Neema Hospital with inpatient facilities to improve quality of medical service provision to the beneficiary community. The facilities included completion of a new hospital wing, a Maternal Child Health [MCH] (inclusive of maternity ward, delivery room as well as a nursery) and installation of medical equipment.  Before the provision of this grant, the hospital was only able to provide outpatient services to the surrounding population at affordable costs.

During the occasion, H.E. Mr. Terada unveiled the plaque and cut the inaugural ribbon together with Hon. Gerald G. Githinji, Deputy Governor of Kiambu County.  They then made a tour of the new magnificent hospital building. The ceremony which included songs performed by high school students began with speeches from officials who expressed their gratitude to Japan.
 
While giving his remarks, H.E. Terada impressed the crowd by speaking some Kiswahili.  He congratulated the organization for having successfully completed the project and appreciated the dedication and hard work of all the stakeholders that contributed to the success.  The Ambassador also mentioned the Government of Japan’s quest to promote activities related to human security and safe childbirth besides child nurturing. He hoped that the new Neema Hospital would not only provide improved health care but also enhance the welfare of the community.
