As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) we visited seven children’s homes in Nairobi and donated foodstuffs, sanitization products, and equipment among other things through the Wazito F Project.
Both playing and none-playing club staff were part of the team that visited seven children’s homes in Mathare, Embakasi, Lang’ata, Ruiru, Kangemi, Valley Road, and Kasarani where they put a smile on the faces of children in these homes during his difficult Coronavirus pandemic period.
The children were shown how to wash their hands properly as a way of protecting themselves from the deadly Coronavirus, they also received pep talks from our players and staff.
The pandemic has brought nearly everything to a halt, the vulnerable groups like children in orphanages are often forgotten and cannot access basic things like food.
“As a club, we decided to stand with one of the vulnerable groups in society. During such times, children in orphanages and children’s homes tend to be forgotten and after consultations, we made a decision to help make the situation better for them during this period by donating foodstuffs and other sanitization products, equipment among other things,” club CEO Dennis Gicheru says.
Gicheru further added that the club has a social responsibility to the community and urged other people to stand with the vulnerable and the less fortunate in the community during this difficult period.
“We have a corporate social responsibility that goes beyond playing football in the stadia. We want to impact lives and make society a better place to live in, we will definitely do more to impact lives for our people. I urge other Well-wishers to show empathy to the needy during this difficult period, be a brother’s keeper,” he added.
He had also had a message for all citizens.
“I urge everyone to exercise discipline, sanitize keep a social distance. They should not endanger their lives in any way, together we shall defeat Coronavirus,” the CEO concluded.
