27 Nov 2021 Events, News

On Saturday 27th November 2021, Team M.P. Shah Hospital and other corporates waded through mud pits and rivers, tumbled up and down slippery trails and went through dark tunnels in Keraita Forest during the 7th edition of The Forest Challenge, an event organized to raise funds for the rehabilitation of Kenya’s water towers.

The event, which is an initiative of the East African Wildlife Society (EAWS) in partnership with Kijabe Environment Volunteers (KENVO) and the Kenya Forest Service (KFS), aimed at preserving and expanding, through afforestation, Kenya’s natural forests, many of which are the source of the country’s water supply.

Ms Nancy Ogonje, the Executive Director of the East African Wildlife Society, thanked Team M.P. Shah Hospital for braving the weather for the noble cause. “This participation demonstrates the Hospital’s passion and dedication to the protection and conservation of our forests.” She said.

Participants, both individual and those from corporate sponsors of The Forest Challenge, got an opportunity to interact with nature through fun and challenging activities while contributing to a noble cause.
