An expectant woman, who was experiencing a medical emergency, found herself stranded in Sericho Ward, Isiolo County due to impassable roads caused by recent flooding.

With medical teams unable to reach her, the situation looked dire.

In response, the CEO said he was humbled to have been in a position to assist.
