Harambee Stars skipper Victor Wanyama in conjunction with kenya Red Cross among others joined hands in donating sanitizers and foodstuffs for Mathre residents in Nairobi to fight coronavirus.
Wanyama, who moved from Tottenham Hotspurs in England to Canadian side Impact Montreal in the last transfer season.
Others were Africa Yoga Project and the Gina Din Foundation that were coordinated from the Billian Center and Cynthia Wanyama, the Victor Wanyama Foundation CEO, says they intend to reach out to more families in informal settlements in the coming days.
“It’s very important to listen to what the health experts are saying over this issue. Let’s wash our hands regularly, minimize our movements and interactions and basically just follow what the government and health experts are advising,” Wanyama said.
“My foundation, its partners such as the Kenya Red Cross and the Africa Yoga Project will do all they can to help during this period,” he added.
“We were overwhelmed as more numbers kept trickling in but we are glad to have played our part. This will go a long way in ensuring the 200 families in Mathare observe hygiene during this period that everyone is fighting coronavirus,” Cynthia said.
