On the 25th December 2017, two groups of people came together and hosted deeds in the cities of Nairobi and Eldoret. The idea for the Christmas deeds came from one individual whose birthday falls on Christmas Day as he wanted to give back to have a different birthday event. He shared the idea of providing food for vulnerable people living on the streets and most friends were interested in doing the deed. This is a great example of what we call an SDG Rafiki event – friends who decide to simply do good.
In Nairobi we had 14 people, all of them being students from different universities within Nairobi. They packed 100 dishes with pilau, meat and cabbage and carried 8 litres of juice and 101 bananas. They walked from Archives to Jivanjee within the CBD sharing food with 100 vulnerable people and giving words of encouragement as they served the meals.
In Eldoret we had a group of 13 friends, who were also students at local universities. They bought 6 boxes of milk, 120 cakes and 120 bananas and they gathered 110 vulnerable people from the streets and fed them. They took the opportunity to interact with them and gave them a chance to showcase their talents. The event concluded with a prayer and one of the people came forward to give a vote of thanks, for they really appreciated the generosity of the team.
