Ruto pledges to safeguard children and vulnerable individuals

According to President William Ruto, his administration is eager to enact policies that would improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable and poor members, particularly children.

Tuesday at State House, the President spoke to Chris Hohn, the chairman of The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation.

Ruto urged aid organisations to support government initiatives aimed at improving Kenyans’ quality of life.

The President commended the assistance provided by development partners in the areas of climate change, healthcare, nutrition, and child protection.

Although the government has achieved considerable strides in the healthcare industry, more work needs to be done, in order to attain universal healthcare according to Ruto.

He claimed that by doing this, people at the bottom of the economic pyramid will be better served.

“We have partnered with counties on a shilling-for-shilling basis for training and remuneration of health workers, however, we need equipment and technology,” Ruto said. 

The Head of State declared that in order to better protect children, the administration will increase public awareness of and use of the Children’s Act.

Hohn stated that TCIFF will advocate for laws to protect minors, increase the number of community health workers throughout the nation, and provide bursaries to disadvantaged Kenyans.

The President also mentioned that the money would help with initiatives to lessen climate change.
