The Tokyo-bound Paralympic team on Saturday received donations from two institutions towards their moral boosting ahead of the Paralympic games that commence on August 24th to September 5th in Japan.

The Kenya Society for the blind donated jackets and water bottles, while BioPharma limited presented topical drugs to the team.

Speaking during the function, Stanley Mutuma, a member of the Kenya Society for the blind and who is also the Team manager of Team Kenya appreciated the two organizations for their good gesture.

Coach Henry Kirwa one of the most decorated Kenya paralympians, asked more companies to come on board and support the team because they are going to make the country proud.

Athlete Eric Sang thanked the government and the organizations that have given them a hand and promised to win medals for Kenya.
