Council commemorate World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims at the National Spinal Injury Hospital in Nairobi.

The Council in partnership with the National Transport Safety Authority (NTSA) commemorated the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims at the National Spinal Injury Hospital in Nairobi.

The theme for this year is ‘Act for Low Speed Streets’. About 30-40 percent of road crashes are attributed to speeding. At the Spinal Injury Hospital, 90 percent of patients brought in for rehabilitation are road crash victims, in their most productive years ranging from 18 – 40, illustrating the impact of road crashes on families’ and the country’s wellness and economy.
The event provided space for psychosocial support. Patients and attendees – including Council’s staff, the Kenya Defence Forces, Chairperson Peter Muchiri and Executive Director Harun Hassan (who are former patients of the hospital) – shared their stories and offered words of encouragement. Council also presented assistive devices
                 
to the hospital, and launched a registration exercise for patients in the hospital.
Also in attendance were KDF’s Captain Beauttah Suba, NTSA Deputy Director Dr. Duncan Kibogong and Spinal Injury Hospital’s Dr. Kihara and Risper Chebet.
