I thank God for the Gift of Life, my family for their unconditional love and everyone who whispered a word of prayer as I went in”
The Women Rep. was however left to answer questions as to how people from the slums would feel to see her get treatment abroad when they could barely afford that of Kenyatta National Hospital.
In her response, she said that it is not about her and them but about a united nation.
“Everything isn’t always about us & them. We are one nation striving for the best.
“That is why I invested in becoming a leader to bring change. How would compromising my health benefit the health of slum dwellers? My experiences help shape our UHCKe goals as a leader & a citizen.”
Passaris was also challenged to bring back the report from India and hear the professional opinion of Kenyan doctors so as to establish whether we lack the expertise or infrastructure.
She admitted having consulted over 10 medics and that the problem in the country is the inability to work as an ‘A’ team.
“I consulted over 10 medics in Kenya. Our problem is our inability to work as an ‘A-Team’ for the benefit of not just patients but the country as a whole. We think pulling each other down is the solution. Carry your mantle & do your part. Kenya is ours to propel.”
