It’s an early Christmas for over 250 families who received goodies

A group of youth from Kangema in Muranga county has donated foodstuffs to over 250 families in the area.

They have also urged other Kenyans to be mindful of their neighbours and share whatever they can, during this holiday season.

Speaking in Nyagatugu where the youth held the charity event, the group leader Jacob Mbuthia explained that the young people had decided to sacrifice a part of their Christmas budgets in order to share with vulnerable members of the society.

According to Mbuthia, this was purely an act of sacrifice and selflessness by the youth who had come together to put smiles on the faces of the less fortunate.

The group had earlier gone around identifying the needy families and thereafter contributed over Sh100,000 for the noble project.

“Together with other well-wishers, we came together to contribute towards making the holidays better for disadvantaged members of the community,” said Mbuthia, adding that they had initially targeted 100 households, but the number increased to 250, forcing them to contribute even more money.

Another youth, David Kibugi, urged young people across the country to not over indulge in alcohol or drug abuse over the festive season, but rather spare some of their money to make a difference by sharing part of it with staving members of the community.

Elizabeth Wanjiru echoed similar sentiments, saying that the youth should always strive to give back to the society.

They promised to hold a similar charity event during the Easter celebrations.

Wanjiru said time was ripe for the youth to change the narrative and bring solutions to the community instead of always being associated with chaos.

Those who received the donations expressed gratitude saying this kind gesture was the surest way to spread Christmas cheer and asked other Kenyans to do the same for their communities.
