Phase One Of Nyc-Chandaria Distribution
On 20th May 2020, NYC alongside Chandaria Industries distributed masks, tissue papers and liquid hand wash to twenty youth champions in Baba Dogo, Ruaraka Constituency, following a successful partnership geared towards supporting government initiatives to protect Kenyans against COVID-19.
This initiative, marked the partnership’s first phase of the distribution targeting vulnerable communities through NYC youth champions to protect them from contracting the virus who in turn distributed the items using the ‘Nymba Kumi Initiative’.
In its continuity to continually engage the public in sensitizing them with the safety measures outlined by the government, the Council took cognisance of the willingness, unwavering resilience and dedication the youth have collectively put in place in ensuring their communities are catered for in terms of supporting them mentally, ensuring that they conduct their businesses and daily engagements safely and healthily without interruptions.
‘’Inclusion and participation of the youth during this period will optimally increase awareness and give room for solutions to vulnerable households; considering each of the twenty youth champions present here today have a target of twenty households.’’ NYC CEO, Roy Sasaka Telewa concluded.
In attendance, was the Permanent Secretary, State Department for Youth, Mr. Julius Korir, Secretary, State Department for Youth Mr. Raymond Ochieng and Chandaria Industries CEO Dr. Darshan Chandaria.
