Post Bank donates goods to the elderly

26 July 2013, 12:30 Joseph Mukubwa

Post Bank has donated assorted foodstuffs and clothes to over 100 elderly people in Kieni East, Nyeri County, in an effort to take care of the elderly this winter.

The Bank officials, led by the Nyeri regional manager Simon Njoroge, donated food and clothes including blankets worth thousands of shillings in order to help the elderly cope with July's cold.

The Purity Elderly Care and Foundation chief executive Joyce Kairu, who received the goods at the foundation offices based in Mweiga Thursday, thanked the bank for remembering the old people saying they deserve much this cold season.

She said this is part of a campaign programme initiated by the foundation in support of creating awareness of the elderly.

Kairu called for more support from well wishers and also urged young people living in urban areas to remember their aged parents who are back at their rural homes this cold season.

“The old people need our care and support; we should look after them especially in this cold season. This is our message; let us help the old people living amongst us because we will one day get old too,” she said.

70-year-old Emily Wairimu, a widow and mother of three children who was one of the beneficiaries of the donations, was very jubilant and thanked the foundation together with Post Bank for their generosity.

She appealed to the young people to remember their parents and grandparents in their old age especially those who cannot fend for themselves.
