Former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta (above) yesterday donated food worth Sh20 million to 12 children's homes in Gatundu and Nairobi.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s sister Nyokabi Kenyatta and former Woman Representative Ann Gathecha gave the donation on behalf of the former first lady.
Nyokabi said the donation was meant to cushion vulnerable children from the shock of the Covid–19 pandemic.
The donation included 13 tonnes of soya, seven tonnes of porridge mix, 950 litres of oil, 750 kilogrammes of green grams, 2.5 tonnes of rice, 1.5 tonnes of beans and 100 bales of maize flour.
