Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been awarded by Israel’s Good Deeds Day Global Organisation as its ambassador to Kenya in recognition of his ‘long-standing contribution in service to humankind’.
“I feel honoured and proud for being awarded with such an award and be associated with Israel’s Good Deeds Day Global Organisation as their ambassador in Kenya,” said Sonko.
According to an Israel billionaire Shari Arison, who is the founder of the organisation, the mission Good Deeds is to reward those who think and do good to make a difference in the world.
During the International Good Deeds Day on April 7, 2019, Sonko ordered for the release of patients held in Nairobi County hospitals over unpaid medical bills.
At the Mbagathi Hospital, more than 30 patients were discharged while at Mama Lucy Hospital 20 others were freed.
Addressing Kenyans through his Facebook account on Sunday, August 11, Sonko said the Organisation sent to him a presentation of a technology to treat cancer.
“From the presentation sent to me, the technology treats and cures cancer within a day by freezing cancer cells using a special device,” said the governor.
Sonko has promised to sponsor 10 cancer patients to Israel as a case study.
