His work as a medical officer in remote areas in Voi, where women had bad obstetric outcomes led him to start the hot tea initiative (where women who had delivered were given hot tea and baby shawls as a motivation for hospital delivery), renovation and opening of the theater which led to his special recognition and Masters sponsorship. He went into Oncology after having met many patients with poor survival rates after lack of access to specialty care and wanted to make a difference.
