Leadenhall Lodge No. 4297 in London has raised £1,500 towards a dedicated renal dialysis unit for Nanyuki Cottage Hospital in Kenya
The hospital is located at the foot of Mount Kenya on the equator at an elevation of 1,905m/6,250 ft.
Amolak Hunjan, Past Master of Leadenhall Lodge No. 4297 in London, grew up watching the expansion of the hospital, as his father provided building and service facilities for the hospital and to this day his business still supports the hospital.
The hospital has been a focus for fundraising activities both for the large and vibrant British Expat community in the Mount Kenya region and the local residents of Nanyuki Township for over 60 years. It was set up under the Cottage Hospital initiative by the colonial administration at the turn of the last century and was bequeathed into perpetuity to the elected board of trustees managing the facility.
The money was raised for a renal dialysis unit during Amolak Hunjan’s year as Worshipful Master in 2017.
