Last April 6th there was the awards ceremony for Quality Healthcare Kenyan Awards, awarded by the Kenyan Ministry of Health to the most virtuous healthcare facilities in Kenya. 

Last year il RU Neema Hospital of World Friends had been awarded two awards, Best Healthcare Director, won by Dr. Washington Njogu, and Best Innovative Project. 

This year the Kenyan government has once again confirmed its esteem for the Neema program and our organisation, awarding two other awards which greatly enhance the work that our colleagues carry out in the area: Best primary care provider in the area and Better in gender equality in positions of responsibility; furthermore Gabriele Beacco, administrative director of the hospital, was the second place in the category for Best position of responsibility in the healthcare sector.  

The first prize received by the hospital has an even greater meaning and value, because it was awarded by direct vote of the population. 

These awards are evidence of the quality work we carry out, both by collaborating with local institutions and with people and make us proud of the results obtained. Medicine in the area, the attention to keeping up with innovative technologies and techniques, the commitment to guaranteeing equal rights to all, are the heart of our mission and what guides our work. Knowing that this is recognized not only by the institutions, but also by the people we work with every day is something that makes us extremely proud and motivates us to continue consistently so that these rights are no longer the property of a few but of everyone. 

Congratulations to all colleagues for this important recognition!
