On Wednesday, street kids and poor households were treated to a Christmas Eve party.
This initiative was led by members of the Laikipia Beyond Beauty Whatsapp Group.
The street families had great food, entertainment and performances. They were given shoes, sanitary pads and clothes before the show ended.
They had a chance to get sanitizers and masks, too.
LBB, commonly referred to as Laikipia Beyond Beauty, organized the event at Nanyuki KANU Ground in Nanyuki Town.
Members of the group have been active in various humanitarian projects for many years now.
Street kids conveyed their gratitude to the well-wishers who have always gone out of their way to support them.
They urged the government to support them. Most of them have changed their conduct. If helped, they can give up street life and provide for themselves and their families.
A vast majority who are now adults own small businesses like hawking, shoe shining and dressmaking.
The well wishers noted that their numbers are growing daily, making it impossible for well-wishers to help everyone.
The noble event drew support from other community members, including political leaders like Mwangi wa Sammy.
Peter Macharia, an artist, said that with the help of the well-wishers, he made it into Form 4.
Cultivating the talents of those who are worse off and who are seen as an embarrassment to society is critical.
Lets Love Them
LBB Family urges the government and everyone to handle them seriously and with love, which will enable them to live a normal life.
At This Is Laikipia, we call on other business people to pitch in and give back to the less fortunate.
By doing so, we will share their issues and figure out solutions.
