The Victor Wanyama Foundation in partnership with Kenya Red Cross, Africa Yoga Project and the Gina Din Foundation have donated sanitising kits and foodstuff to over two hundred families in Mathare, Nairobi.

The donations were coordinated from the Billian Centre, and Cynthia Wanyama, the foundation's CEO, says they intend to reach out to more families in informal settlements.

“We were overwhelmed as 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 on Friday.

The Harambee Stars captain who recently moved to Canadian side Impact Monreal has also urged Kenyans to follow the set guidelines by the government to try and stop the spread of the deadly virus.

“It’s very important to listen to what the health experts are saying over this issue. Let’s wash our hands regularly,” Wanyama said.
