In the wake of the novel Corona Virus, many philanthropists and well wishers from around the world have come up to support initiatives aimed at cushioning low income households and the general population. In Kenya, the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry KNCCI, in partnership with several fashion players came together on Thursday April 16th to donate free Corona Virus masks to residents of the Kasarani community in Nairobi.

Last week, officials from the Ministry of Trade and Industry toured Uhuru market to witness production of Personal Protective Equipment as SMEs unleash their capacity to contribute in war against Corona Virus. 

Fashion Industry players Hando Africa Designs and Marumara Creations were actively involved in the production of masks for donation to Kasarani residents.

Led by the Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and Enterprise Development, Hon. Betty C Maina, the government officials approved and commended the local traders for their noble effort in assisting the government to fight the deadly pandemic.

As more hands continue to join in the fight against Corona Virus, let’s remember that we all have a role to play in this fight by washing our hands, sanitizing, wearing masks in public places and avoiding big crowds. The fight against Corona Virus can be won by me and you if we continue to work together and comply with government directives.
