On 31st of May 2019, Catholic Hospital Wamba (CHW) and Maralal Catholic Secretariat (MCS) organized a sporting and team building event at the Allamano Multi-Purpose hall. The auspicious occasion was meant to strengthen ties between the two departments under the Catholic Diocese of Maralal.
The employees who attended and participated in the event declared that the event was a success and will long be remembered as fun, enlightening and a great experience for all “We had a great time”, and most importantly we learned how to feel, share and care for each other. The MCS team carried the day in overall indoor games (Basket Ball, Men’s Volley Balls, Netball & tag of war) while the desert roses (CHW team) dominated in outdoor games (Football, Relay Races, Women’s Volleyball and Sack races).
The noble idea to hold the event was conceived by Rev. Fr. Chris Letikirich (Diocesan finance Administrator) and Rev.Fr. Paul Maina (Catholic Hospital Wamba-CEO & Director Nursing School). The two underscored the importance of working together, and observed that the only way to cope with the need to do more with less is by working cooperatively in an environment of trust and respect, when people work in such environment they put aside turf issues and politics and focus more on the tasks to be done which contributes to better problem solving, greater productivity and more effective use of available resources. They expressed delight for convening the event and anticipated that it will achieve its purpose.
Later, the evening was an enriching experience for staffs the celebratory mood allowed them to get to know each other differently than they might in the work place.
