26 August 2014, 21:02 Wilshere

Nakuru - Destitute children at Pistis Centre in Nakuru town were on Monday treated to a rare occasion when a Nairobi based company donated foodstuffs and clothing’s worth over KES 250,000.

The Greenbell Communications Limited Chief Commercial Officer Valentine Miheso said the gesture was part of the corporate responsibility to the society.

Miheso who was accompanied by  his wife Rose Magasi and other members of the Staff said the event will be held annually. The occasion was marked with music and other entertainment.

He said other Kenyans should also learn to give back to the society and praised the directors of the home Gladys Wekesa and Bishop Laban Wekesa for their love and commitment to assist orphans and other vulnerable children.

“Other Kenyans should emulate the kind of help we are doing in helping out destitute children and families,” he said.

The couple used the occasion to celebrate birthday of their son Roy and shared meals and drinks with the children staying at their home.

Reverend Wekesa commended the company for the donation and asked other well wishers  to emulate them.

She further added that the home has more than 200 children who are orphans and depend on well wishers to study and reside there.

At the same time she also called on the government to come up with programs that will help safeguard the future of orphans in the country.
