Gor Mahia fans foundation corporate social responsibility

As part of the Gor Mahia fans foundation corporate social responsibility, fans participated in a visit to the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) on Saturday to share love with the sick little ones. The events was organized by fans to share the champion’s feeling with the community after a sterling performance in the 2013 season of the Kenya Premier League (KPL) which saw Gor Mahia win the title after an 18 year hiatus.

Fans from all walks of life came together under the organization of Gor Mahia Fans Foundation for that event. They contributed fruits, toys, toiletries and other consumables goods for the comfort of the children in the hospital. Further, fans contributed money that went towards purchase of some of the above listed items. A good portion of the contribution will go towards offsetting bills for the most needy of the children in the hospital. During this visit, fans engaged the children in conversation, play songs and dances to cheer them up and show them that the community care about them and wish them strength and a quick recovery.

The good move did not end at Kenyatta National Hospital  as  a huge number of fans  attended a mass service at St. Stephen’s Catholic church – Jogoo road on Sunday as a way of appreciation and thanking God for the good season their club had.

Speaking about the two events, one fan, Treazer Massa explained why Gor fans engaged in the two events. “It’s not always about football alone, there is need to be close to the community and putting a smile on a needy face goes along way.  Giving thanks to God for enabling us lift the trophy was worth it since we all know that it’s not by might but by God's Grace,” said Treazer.

 The church dedicated a portion of their 2 hour service (9am to 11am) to offer prayers to the fans, club and the team. Gor Mahia fans also contributed money towards completion of the Church’s perimeter wall project. What a way to thank God for the season.
