Nyc’s Collaborative Effort With Kenya Pipeline Company In The Distribution Of Gok Sanitizers And Reflectors To Boda Boda Riders
To diversify its outreach in regards to fighting COVID19, NYC engaged with Boda Boda Safety Association of Kenya, through its Chairman, through its National Chairperson, Mr. Kevin Mubadi on 12th May 2020.
In keeping with a collective national effort of partnering with local and national governments, partners and other corporations to support development projects that will benefit the public, the Council donated GoK hand sanitizers that were donated to KPC by the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) on 29th April 2020, through its Managing Director, Dr. Irungu Macharia (in the presence of the Permanent Secretary, State Department for Petroleum, Amb. Andrew Kamau).
The CEO, NYC stressed on the fact that there is a global demand for protective equipment and health supplies to prevent COVID-19, and Kenya is of no exception. “Our response to this crisis thus far, and going forward, is guided by the Council’s mission: To enhance youth capacity and active participation in social, political and economic prosperity through strategic consultations, engagements and partnerships. Today marks our initial allocation of the first Emergency Health Support distribution plan and we strategically launched it at Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD) since this is a high traffic zone.’’
The event, that took place at Uhuru Park, saw a total of 67 riders receiving the GoK hand sanitizers and KPC-NYC-branded reflectors with sensitization message, ‘Sanitize to Fight Corona, #UsafiNdioDeal’. The Council remains steadfast in ensuring continuity of this joint project with Kenya Pipeline Company and the promotion of national cohesion with relevant state and private entities.
