OVER 150 orphans and vulnerable children from Kanyamai children's home in Kaiti, Makueni county received food worth Sh17,000 as a New Year gift from the Wote Equity Bank Branch.
The food stuff included bales of maize flour, rice, cooking oil and sweets and was delivered to the children's home on Saturday by the bank's Manager John Mwangi who was accompanied by Equity education trainers under the bank's Financial Literacy Training Department.
Speaking after presenting the food to the children's home director John. King'oku, Mwangi challenged the community to emulate the bank and help the less fortunate.
He said the disadvantaged encountered countless problems that included moral and material needs and noted that it was the responsibility of the society to chi-in and help them address the wants.
"I challenge the well wishers in our society to chip -in with education support just like the Bank to enable these children have a bright future," Mr. Mwangi said.
He said, besides material support, Equity Bank has financed the education of 35 needy children in Makueni County since the Wings to Fly scheme was launched two year s ago and eleven of them were from the Kanyamai children's home.
