Deeply moved by the plight of Valary Adhiambo, a schoolgirl who underwent a leg amputation, philanthropist Eric Omondi took action to secure a prosthetic limb for her. Despite successfully raising funds online, Omondi was pleasantly surprised when Cure Kenya Hospital offered the prosthetic free of charge.
In a heartfelt expression of gratitude, comedian Eric Omondi thanked the generous donors who contributed over KSh 630,000 for Valary Adhiambo. Adhiambo, a Form Three student from Muhoroni, faced the challenge of cancer-related leg amputation. Omondi revealed that Cure Kenya Hospital, in a commendable gesture, volunteered to provide Adhiambo with a prosthetic limb at no cost.
The raised funds will now be directed towards covering Adhiambo’s chemotherapy, scans, recovery, school fees, and supporting her mother’s business. Omondi shared a video capturing the moment when Adhiambo, accompanied by her family, arrived at the Nairobi hospital for measurements for the prosthetic. The touching video concluded with Omondi personally handing the raised funds in cash to Adhiambo and her family, assuring that the prosthetic would be ready in a few days.
Omondi acknowledged Daddy Owen’s influential role in facilitating Cure Kenya Hospital’s generous offer. The positive impact of Omondi and Daddy Owen’s charitable efforts resonated widely on social media, with Kenyans praising the celebrities for their compassion and benevolence.
In another instance last December, Omondi demonstrated his altruistic spirit by coming to the aid of gospel artiste Alpha Mwana Mtule, who faced hospitalization with a medical bill amounting to KSh 450,000. Omondi swiftly leveraged his social media platform, successfully raising KSh 370,000 within a remarkable 10-hour timeframe to cover Mtule’s medical expenses.
