KAKAMEGA Governor Wycliffe Oparanya hosts AMREF at his office

Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya on Wednesday, 19 May, 2021 held a meeting at his office with AMREF officials on the progress made by the County government in identifying and putting vulnerable families on the Healthcare Insurance under the Universal HealthCare programme.

The Oparanya thanked AMREF for their support towards making the programme successful by ensuring transparency in identifying deserved cases.

The team was led by Mr Billy Olwenda who is in charge of the Social Economic Survey programme.

AMREF has already done mapping of 84,846 poor families out of which 35,799 qualify for the programme because of their desperate status.

The data obtained is used by my Government to support the vulnerable through various programmes like supply of farm inputs where 24,000 poor farmers benefitted from free fertilizer and maize seeds supplied to them this planting season.

My Government has allocated Sh57 million this Financial Year’s budget to support programmes targeting poor families.
We welcome more partnership with AMREF geared towards supporting the poor.

~ Wycliffe Oparanya, Governor Kakamega County ~
