Meanwhile, Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho has pledged to support the youth by giving them the substantial resources.

The county boss appreciated the role played by the community health volunteers within the county saying that he is devoted to improving the conditions of their lives.

“Community Health Workers play a bigger responsibility in ensuring that health of the residents is improved.” The governor said.

He promised to partner with the Red Cross and other donors in a bid to streamline the health sector.
