Lisha Jamii Intiative In Nanyuki Ward, 3000 Families Benefited
Updated on: May 24, 2020
Yesterday, Lisha Jamii Initiative under Zero Contact Food Distribution System Program continued with the countywide food distribution exercise giving care packages to 3000 households in Nanyuki Ward, Laikipia East.
The magnitude of the exercise required a flawless plan, from the system performance, teams coordinations, distribution stations clearly spelt out, beneficiaries' total cooperation, and COVID-19 health guidelines compliance - it was just that.
Challenges not withstanding, our people are happy and the community was very supportive. Our most hit members of the community including the elderly went home with food hampers that will push them for at least two weeks.
This program will continue across the County as County drafts and refines County's economic recovery strategies to ensure a seamlessly transit from a grounded economy to a working and vibrate economy.
Our gratitudes goes out to partners and well wishers who have heard and responded to our call during these tough times. Among them, British Army BATUK who helped us in transporting food to various stations.
We had BAKETEX who gave us over 500 bails of wheat flour, Nanyuki Jamia Mosque community who gifted us with food packages, others well wishers in cash, and over fifty volunteers who helped in packing, loading, offloading and in distribution. All, much appreciated.
The nation however is not out of the woods yet, Laikipians must not drop the ball. Reopening of the economy means adopting a whole new lifestyle, new ways of doing things, in doing business, in worship and in our manners too, because this killer virus will still be with us still.
