Following the tragic events that unfolded in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, from 21 September, the directors of Minerva Trust & Corporate Services have set up a disaster relief fund to provide medical services to the victims.

All of the funds and donations raised under the disaster relief fund, which has been established through the Meghraj Charitable Foundation, will go directly to the M.P. Shah Hospital, with Minerva covering any administration costs. The hospital, which was founded by the family of Minerva’s Chairman, Mr Vipin M.P. Shah, is the closest hospital to the scene of the tragedy.

So far, the M.P. Shah Hospital has treated over 125 people, 100 of whom were successfully operated on for bullet, grenade and shrapnel injuries. A further nine patients are still receiving treatment in the Hospital.

Thanks to the overwhelming support that has been received, the M.P. Shah Hospital now has 40 doctors and over 100 volunteers providing aid to the victims of Saturday’s attack, with more than 100 pints of blood being donated.

The Shah family, one of the shareholders of Minerva, has already donated £10,000 to the M.P. Shah Hospital disaster relief fund and Minerva will be continuing to provide support in any way we possibly can. With 100 per cent of the money we raise going directly to the M.P. Shah Hospital in order to provide aid and relief to the victims of this tragic attack, we would be grateful if you could support us in our efforts.
