English Español Vivo Energy Kenya boosts Government initiative to tackle COVID-19

The Shell-branded business has produced an additional 100,000 litres of hand sanitizer.

Last update:

Vivo Energy Kenya, the company that distributes and markets Shell-branded fuels and lubricants in the country, has produced an additional 100,000 litres of hand sanitizers for the Government of Kenya. This brings the organization’s sanitizers production during the COVID-19 pandemic to 350,000 litres.

The Government, through the Ministry of Health, has continuously urged Kenyans to ensure they wash their hands with soap, and where they cannot, use sanitizers. The additional litres will ensure that more Kenyans get access to sanitizers.

In March 2020, Vivo Energy Kenya, in partnership with the Government of Kenya, produced 250,000 litres of sanitizers, which were distributed to Kenyans for free by Kenya Pipeline Company, using various arms of national and county government, and various community organizations to reach many people.

The new 100,000 litres were handed over to the Principal Secretary, State Department of Petroleum, Ministry of Petroleum and Mining, Andrew Kamau by Vivo Energy Kenya Managing Director, Peter Murungi.

“Vivo Energy Kenya and Kenya Pipeline Company have built a relationship that goes beyond our traditional business links. This engagement has ensured that Kenyans are empowered to fight this global pandemic,” said Macharia Irungu, Managing Director Kenya Pipeline Company.
