Little, a local taxi company Wednesday shared Valentine’s love by bailing out a cancer patient who was being held in Kenyatta National Hospital over an outstanding bill of close to Sh.1 Million.

The Company’s General Manager Ronald Mahondo and Janet Kanini of Ikua Foundation settled the outstanding hospital bill to secure the discharge of 11-year old boy, Stephen who had been diagnosed with chronic Leukemia and was undergoing treatment.

“I was told of Stephen’s plight by one of our staff members and I was moved. As a company that seeks to provide real solutions to Kenyans, we decided to team up with Janet Kanini so that we can get this young boy home with his family,” said Ronald.

Janet Kanini emerged victorious after battling with lung cancer and expresses her happiness when she sees more corporate entities join in the walk to support cancer patients.

“As a foundation, our dream is to see every Kenyan and every corporate entity actively join in the cause to ensure timely and successful treatment of cancer. This can be a very expensive venture and it is so refreshing to see companies like Little step in without asking for huge proposals and justifications from the needy,” she said.
