Thirteen children in Ruiru Children Care Centre, in Ruiru bypass are all-smiles after receiving mattress donations on Wednesday to ease their transition and admission to secondary school.
The beneficiaries, who have grown and schooled in local primary schools in Ruiru sat for their Kenya Secondary School Examinations in 2018 and are expected to join form one this month but lack basic admission requirements.
The donations were issued by one of the biggest foam product-making company Superfoam Limited ,as a way of lending a hand back to the society. According to Superfoam’s production manager, George Omondi, the act is an indicator of the company’s role and commitment to causes that touch human lives and environment.
“Having a place to lay your head and rest can make a big difference between success and failure. Giving these mattresses to the kids is one of the many ways that we have been using and intend to continue using to give humanity a fresh morning with possibilities. The smiles on their faces speaks volumes of what this means to them,” said Omondi.
One of the beneficiaries, Rahab Njeri, who scored 383 points will be admitted to Mary Leaky Girls High School said that it was a joy to have one egg in the admission basket as she was almost giving up on her dreams of becoming an engineer. “This is a relief to us. I will have a comfortable place to lie on and give me freshness to concentrate on my studies to achieve my dream of becoming an engineer,” said Rahab with a smile on her face.
Superfoam Limited has been on the forefront in conducting activities with great social impact especially around Nairobi, Kiambu and Laikipia counties.
