300 needy children in Nakuru on Wednesday benefited with dignity packs from Lions Club of Menengai.
According to the Club’s President Rani Ramchandani,the donation was made possible through the support from Nairobi Giant Group of Twiga.
The donation was handed over to the 200 girls and 100 boys at Hyrax Hill Museum during Nakuru Child Rights Network event to launch 16 Days of Activism.
The packs contain sanitary pads for the girls,soaps,and inner wears for boys.
The packs will go long way in ensuring dignity for the needy children with majority of girls having to struggle to get sanitary pads.
Rani noted that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a big blow to families.
She noted some girls have to go without sanitary pads during their menses as parents struggle to put food on table.
“We have served 300 children.For boys we have 100 benefiting with the dignity packs while 200 girls will also benefit.We are doing this so that the children can feel part of the society” said Rani.
Lions Club of Menengai has been in the forefront in reaching out to vulnerable groups in society with donations especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
