Homabay County government has promised to dedicate Ksh. 50 million in it’s 2022/23 financial year budget to the fight against cancer across the county. This was said by the county governor Cyprian Otieno Awiti as he officially opened Empower Cancer Centre that has been built at the Homabay County Referral Hospital, a project that was initiated by the county’s first lady Rosila Awiti.
He went ahead to say that the centre will be of great benefit to Homabay residents in fighting cancer, that they have been seeking its treatment in other neighbouring counties.
