Rotary Club Of Nairobi Lang'ata Pulls Togther to Feed Over 90 Families During COVID-19 Pandemic
It is indeed a challenging time in our country as our frontline health workers continue to lead in the war against the spread of the deadly Coronavirus. Devastating images of people begging for food are heartbreaking and robbing our fellow Kenyans of the pride we hold as a nation.
“As Kenyans we are known world over for our solidarity and our fighting spirit as we stand up for our fellow countrymen. Thanks to the noble contributions of members and partners, we have been able to put food on the table for 90 families and will continue to do so over the next 5 weeks. The distribution of the hampers will be coordinated by two reputable organizations, St Joseph the Worker Catholic Church and the Shining Hope for Communities. These teams will enable us reach families in dire need of food within Nairobi’s informal settlements.” ~Michael Kimani, Club President 2109-2020
