Our inaugural plant launched in 2014 by First Lady Mrs. Margaret Kenyatta, this plant serves over 10 counties with oxygen & accessories.
The Nakuru plant is a partnership between the Nakuru County and Hewatele with the support of Grand Challenges Canada.
The plant is also a PPP between Nairobi County, Hewatele, CPHD, UNICEF and Grand Challenges Canada as the development partner.
It is for this reason that we developed HEWATELE model - to ensure that health workers will never have to choose which life to save...especially because of limited Oxygen supply.

This plant demonstrates what we can achieve with the right partnerships between the government and the private sector. The plant is close to my heart.

We could not use oxygen properly before for power problems and delivery issues. Now it’s prompt. Now oxygen is all around us. Patient services have completely changed.

Oxygen is so quick. And it’s so easy. We don’t refer anybody now for such problems. Oxygen is cheap when you consider the lives we are saving.
